De-Stress Your Semester

Resources to support a calm, focused, productive finish to your semester.

Take a Hike!

Josh Kollin, instructional designer and Sakai guru in CELTT, says the Falls Road Light Rail Station has a very nice boardwalk leading to Lake Roland Park, making the park easy to access. The nature center at Lake Roland is open but at limited capacity.


Aiden Faust, Associate Direct of the Special Collections and Archives at the University of Baltimore likes the Herring Run Greenway to Lake Montebello.


Kyle Breneman of the RLB's Integrated Services Department loves to take walks around Midtown near  our beautiful campus. He offered this short write up:

"Here are a few places I recommend:

  • John Street Park in Bolton Hill - This section of John Street is closed to traffic.  There are two benches and a fountain.  The flowerbeds are well cared for and there are several different kinds of flowers.
  • Ana Maria’s Garden - Not too far from John Street Park, more benches and flowers. Across the sidewalk from this space is another flower bed that is beautiful in spring and summer.
  • Leakin Park - Haven’t hiked there, but it is a very large park and there are trails.
  • Lake Montebello - large water reservoir, around which is a paved bike and walking path.  There is also some exercise equipment at stations around the lake."


Ana Maria's Garden


Sean Hogan, Assistant Director for Access Services and Facilities, likes Cylburn Arboretum for its beautiful walking trails and gardens.



Sean also likes Double Rock Park near Parkville on the border between Baltimore City and Baltimore County. There are two fun trails to hike and a pretty river.

Further out from the city, one of Sean's favorite spots to hike is Cascade Falls in Patapsco State Park.
