Robert E. Lee Memorial Park is a park encompassing 415 acres [2] of woodland, wetlands, serpentine barrens, rare plants and rocky plateaus surrounding Lake Roland in Baltimore County, Maryland, located near the intersection of Falls Road and Lake Avenue, adjacent to the Falls Road Light Rail Stop. Though the park is located outside the limits of Baltimore city, it is owned by the city and leased to Baltimore County, Maryland.

The park's main attractions are walking trails, where dogs are permitted, the dam over Jones Falls, and the artificial impoundment created by the dam called Lake Roland.

The park includes a newly reconstructed Paw Point. Outside of the dog park, a leash is required for all dogs. There are park rangers walking around to enforce leash laws and other rules. Rangers are instructed to issue citations to violators.

The park was closed in late 2009 for extensive renovations. It reopened to the public on Friday, October 14, 2011.
