Walking Tour of Roland Park Paths
Sunday, October 14, 2018
Join FMOPL on a popular tour of the unique footpaths of the Roland Park community while learning about the history and architecture of the neighborhood. This tour is run through RPCS Kaleidoscope program.
In developing this community in the late 1800s, the Roland Park Company incorporated into its plan a series of footpaths, 18 in total, designed to expedite foot traffic between various sections of the neighborhood, especially in those where the terrain made it difficult to build roads. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., son of the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., in collaboration with Edward H. Bouton, general manager of the Roland Park Company, the paths were part of a hierarchical system of roads in front of houses, service lanes in the rear, and footpaths that provided convenient ways to cross through the neighborhood in a natural setting.
This tour is run through RPCS Kaleidoscope program.
Tour Leaders: Katherine Brower (FMOPL) and Kathy Hudson (local author)
