Gwynns Falls TrailThink green and thank the Olmsteds as you walk along the Gwynns Falls Trail. If it weren't for the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects firm, the City of Baltimore would not be blessed with most of its large multipurpose parks, neighborhood playgrounds, boulevards, parkways, and wooded stream valleys. Hired by the Municipal Arts Society in 1903 and 1926, the Olmsteds envisioned swaths of green tempering the area's urbanization and providing places to enjoy the outdoors. Over the years the city adopted most of the plan. Today officials, civic organizations, and volunteers from all walks of life are working together to revitalize these natural preserves and complete the plan envisioned over 100 years ago.
