ROADS & RAILS

This section extends to the shoreline of Black Walnut Creek and includes a fine stand of canopy hardwoods. Two historical features make this section particularly noteworthy. The depression that was once Walnut Drive, which the developer hoped would spur lot sales in the 1950s, runs across the creek side of this section. Closer to Herndon Avenue is the railbed of the Bay Ridge and Annapolis Railroad, built in 1886 to bring vacationers to the grand Victorian resort on Tolly Point. Rail service ceased in 1903 and the tracks were torn up for scrap metal in World War I.
