If not for a labor of love by local leaders, Indian Rock Park would probably be a row of single-family homes. In the late 1990s, this 16-acre plot, which borders Perry Hall High School, was purchased by Baltimore County to save it from development. More than a decade later in 2009, the Perry Hall Improvement Association convinced the county to dedicate the area as a park. A hidden side entrance, about 50 yards off of Ebenezer Road, reveals a gravel walking trail, which is not handicapped accessible. Virtually untouched by humans, the area shelters several varieties of trees and shrubs, deer, birds, rabbits, squirrels and countless insects. You may want to spritz on a little bug spray before walking this trail.
