Roland Park Community Foundation wants to open a park for everyone

January 30, 2023

A group raising money to buy land off Falls Road for a new park wants to create an inviting place of wonderment with rows of trees, small bridges and recreational spaces to play and rest. The Roland Park Community Foundation also has a goal of inclusiveness as part of its guiding principle for the park, to be called Hillside Park, that will be located on 20 acres now owned by the Baltimore Country Club in the Roland Park neighborhood. “For me, communities do not have boundaries,” said Rita Walters, a volunteer who has advocated for the purchase of the land for years. “When I speak of community, it’s really expansive. And that definition is Baltimore City.”
