Baltimore shares plans for Druid Hill Park's reservoir lake


(Baltimore, MD) -- The Baltimore Department of Recreation and Parks is sharing plans forDruid Hill Park's reservoir lake.

According to officials, the department would make the reservoir the centerpiece of the historic west Baltimore park's renovations.

Renderings from designers show a lake where city residents can swim and boat and even stroll across the water on a pedestrian bridge.

The proposal also calls for the creation of two islands and floating wetlands on the lake while bringing native plants and wildlife into the area.

Parks and Recreation officials believe the rehab will serve the surrounding neighborhoods and the city at large.

The design is expected to go in front of the city's Urban Design and Architecture Advisory Panel for consideration.
