Built in 1906, the Bay Shore Amusement Park was in its heyday a bustling and attractive park offering recreation and relaxation to the residents of Baltimore. The park included a dance hall, bowling alley, restaurant, roller coaster, rides, and a pier jutting out into the Chesapeake Bay. Bay Shore Park was accessible by trolley from Baltimore, and was probably the premier facility of its kind ever located on the Bay. Join naturalists for a 2-mile walk on easy terrain to discover some of the artifacts from the park.
Please bring water and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. A service charge is in effect at North Point State Park – $3/vehicle for MD residents; $5/vehicle for out-of-state residents. email@example.com. 410-592-2897

From Western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, our state is rich with water: it’s part of our history, our culture, our future. Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
This event is listed as part of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland H2O initiative and #ValueWater programming.
