The Baltimore Greenway Trails Network is a vision for a 35-mile world-class network of urban trails that will link together the diverse neighborhoods, cultural amenities and outdoor resources that make up the landscape of Baltimore City.

When complete, the trail network will connect the city’s popular institutions and destinations—including universities, hospitals, museums, parks, schools, waterfronts and employment centers—with Baltimore’s diverse communities. The trail network will transform the public realm by providing equitable, healthy, low-stress access to open space and reliable transportation and recreation for people of all ages and abilities.

The panelists will share their own perspectives on the proposed connection trails that are needed to complete the network’s loop, and on parks, greenways, community resilience, health, and equity. They will also analyze the logistical and social challenges that face this project.
