Clifton Park was previously a farmland purchased by John Hopkins in 1853. The estate was later converted into a recreational space with activities open to the community. It's 18-hole golf course was the first of its kind in Baltimore. This landscape features the splendid Clifton Mansion, manicured lawns, flourishing woods, as well as clay tennis courts and swimming pools. Despite refurbishment over the years, it retains its original English style and charm. It is, however, the various events hosted here that attract visitors the most.
