Baltimore has one national park—Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine—in addition to many excellent local parks. Besides hiking, biking and picnicking, visitors and locals alike enjoy movies, concerts and fun-filled festivals highlighting these verdant natural treasures. Read on for what’s happening.
