Gwynns Falls Trail

Leakin Park provides tennis courts, playgrounds, sports fields, picnic facilities, and woodlands for year-around public use. This property was once a part of Thomas de Kay Winans' country estate, Crimea, purchased by the city in the 1940s with funds from a bequest by J. Wilson Leakin. Today the estate serves as the home of the Chesapeake and Allegheny Live Steamers railroad, the Carrie Murray Nature Center, the Baltimore Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound Program, and the annual Baltimore Herb Festival.
