Belvedere Avenue At Reisterstown Road
Electric Park was an early amusement park, which started out as a trotting track , located in the Northwest section of Baltimore City. The park was razed around 1915, and development since then has completely erased any traces of the old park. The postcard ( below ) shows the park around 1907. A trolley pulled up right to the gate of the Park, and light bulbs were used to light up the Park at night, a new curiosity in the early 1900’s. The park, had rides, fountains, a theatre, and various amusements. In 1909, a airship launched from Electric Park and flew to downtown Baltimore, having a bit of a crash landing on a roof of a downtown business. Electric Park boasted 24 rides, including a carousel, 2 roller coasters, swimming pool, boat lake, vaudeville, band concerts, and the cyclorama of the Johnstown Flood, seen below .
