Welcome to Roland Park.

Roland Park is a 19th century development that makes perfect sense for the 21st century lifestyle. It is such an exceptional place to live because of its natural beauty, its architectural integrity, its proximity to all that Baltimore City has to offer and its strong sense of community.

In Roland Park…

The houses are old but the neighborhood is vibrant. It is an ideal place to raise a family, be part of an active and engaged community, make lasting friendships with your neighbors, and retire in the beauty of an historic and bucolic setting.

Shops, library, post office, community pool – all are within walking distance. The office buildings of downtown Baltimore are 15 minutes south, while the countryside of Baltimore County is 15 minutes north.

Roland Park was founded in 1891 as one of the first planned suburban garden communities in the United States. The famed landscape architecture company of Frederick Law Olmsted laid out many sections of the neighborhood, incorporating a wide variety of housing styles, sizes and configurations, as well as mixed-use commercial properties. The roads follow natural topography in a curvilinear design that slows traffic and highlights the beauty of the land.
