Listed as a U.S. Historic District, the Roland Park neighborhood was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted between 1890 and 1920 as the first “planned suburban community”. This is a classic of neighborhoods built at that time: large setbacks, park-like mediums, gracious homes, and period lighting. Roland Park is also about 1 mile from Johns Hopkins University and the neighborhood hotels around there. Use Roland Ave. between W. Nothern Parkway and W. Cold Spring Ln. as your boundaries. Create your own route or use our mapped 5.8 mile route as a guideline.
