Carrie Murray Nature Center

1901 Ridgetop Road

The Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks established the Carrie Murray Nature Center in the late 1980’s after receiving a generous donation from baseball legend Eddie Murray. The Nature Center, dedicated and named in memory of Mr. Murray’s mother, is located inside the 1216 acre historic Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park.

The park is home to hawks, owls, deer, fox, raccoons, beavers, opossums, turtles, and a great array of song birds.

This place is very informative and a great place for kids and people to learn about bugs and animals and the wilderness. The staff was great and the children learned a lot. I reccomend this place.

The building is pretty small but they have some pretty cool animals (mostly reptiles and amphibians, plus few birds). I especially liked the large lizards and the chameleon because of its colors. They keep it pretty warm so your more likely to see the snakes and other reptiles active (and it's a great respite from the cold of winter). Plus, all the animals are rescue animals and the staff are friendly and happy to help you find the sneakier animals.

Best part of west Baltimore! Hawks, turtles, vultures, and owls oh my! This is a must see if you love nature and like to walk the trails but live in the city! This area will be the spot to be when Baltimore turns the city around!
