Imagine the ramparts and bastions! Listen for the sounds of bombs bursting over the rushing stream of the Jones’ Falls as we ride and share stories of Baltimore in 1814 from Carroll Park to Hampstead Hill. Of course, we’ll also be sure to share how Frederick Law Olmsted and the Olmsted Brothers helped to transform these former fortifications into the beautiful public parks we still know and love today.
