Baltimore Green Map, an environmental advocacy group founded by 1998 OSI-Baltimore Community Fellow Janet Felsten, recently released its latest Jones Falls Trail Connected map, which is available online (side one and side two) and in a 24” x 17” handily folded, pocket-size print version available for free at many locations listed here.
Side one includes a full, detailed map of the 12-mile long trail, which runs from Pimlico Road in North Baltimore to the Waterfront Promenade, where it connects where the Gwynn Falls Trail. The map also includes locations and details for 99 points of interest along the way, including parks, gardens, water features, museums, performance spaces, arts districts, historical sites, community spaces, and lots of places to eat and shop local.
Side two includes detailed trail overviews describing the character and history of the different trail sections, along with detailed maps of Druid Hill Park and Cylburn Arboretum maps, plus some resources for further learning and ways to toke action.
“We believe that parks and neighborhoods should have a more symbiotic relationship,” says Felsten. “Our goals are to better inform residents and visitors about the unique, positive features of our city, to make asset maps for practical public not bureaucratic use, and to expand engagement in environmental advocacy and stewardship.”
