Tourists visit a city because they've seen a blurb on a TV show or the news, and they thought it looked interesting. Attractions like the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone Park draw tourists to a city, too.
Baltimore has its share of tourists, and they come to see Fort McHenry of Star Spangled Banner fame and the Edgar Allan Poe House. They marvel at the meticulously manicured lawns and the plants and flowers. They wish their lawns looked like that. Where tourists don't usually go is the neighborhoods and suburbs surrounding a destination city. Who knew that one of Baltimore's suburbs was founded in 1812. Not only that, but the city was at that time not even five miles from the Baltimore high lands where the British hoped to trounce Washington, D. C.
A district attorney named Elias Glenn founded a county seat in what is now Brooklyn Park. He called it Glennsburne. His descendants added to the family property by buying the Curtis Creek Mining, Furnace and Manufacturing Company. The family property now consisted of several thousand northern Anne Arundel County acres. It didn't consist of lawns artfully arranged by Lawn Love.
The city became an official state suburb in 1888. Glenn's descendants hired promoters to lay out the town and promote it. In 1930, the postmaster decided two words sounded better than one, so Glenburnie became Glen Burnie.
The Glen Burnie of the 21st century is a new mix of residential and business areas. Almost every part of the city is walkable. Farmer's markets in summer, festivals, and ice skating on the square in winter are among the many things to do and see in Glen Burnie. Another is the city's parks.
Cedar Morris Hill Park
Located at 351 Arundel Corporation Road, Cedar Morris Hill Park is about tennis courts. Two of them grace this park, with a program to match players to others within their skill level.
An ample green space bordered by forested lots, the park features one tennis court and one basketball court. There's room on the nicely clipped grass to have a picnic, play some volleyball, or grab some "me" time in the sun. You'll find the park at 7769 Freetown Road.
North Glen Park
Located at 1391 Gordon Drive, the park is a vast green space with three baseball diamonds, one of which is lighted. Also available is a basketball court, a handball court, a nature trail, a paved walking trail, concession, and restrooms.
Some Maryland parks don't stuff their green spaces with toys. In this one, there's plenty of room to stretch your legs, picnic, have fun in the sun and enjoy the trees and green spaces all around you.
At 813 Casual Court, you will find a somewhat triangular space, partly wooded and partly open green space. Tucked into one of the forested areas is an athletic court. Hit the courts for some exercise in the sun and fresh air, look on as your family plays, or set up a picnic, a birthday party, or enjoy the day.
Sawmill Creek Park
7405 Charley Eckman Lane is home to a park that has it all. Some Anne Arundel County parks contain playground equipment, covered picnic gazebos, walking trails, water for swimming, fishing, or boating, athletic fields, and restrooms. This park has it all.
Watch as your kids play on one of four baseball diamonds, a skate park, basketball court, or six tennis courts. Take advantage of the green spaces to walk, run, or play. This park even offers a water fountain for your enjoyment.
On 7535 Solley Road, you'll find a park consisting of two tennis courts, two basketball courts, a baseball field, a playground with play equipment, and a pavilion. There's also plenty of wooded and open green space to enjoy fresh air, sunshine, and family.
Many homeowners spend hundreds of hours ensuring their lawns look like those found in a perfectly manicured park. Many homeowners, though, work and take care of their homes and families, so they don't have hundreds of hours to work on their yards.
