    Sharing is caring!

    The 5.5-acre, 3-block linear park will provide a wonderful new amenity for the entire East Baltimore community. Residents, workers and visitors will be able to socialize, relax, buy fresh produce, exercise, play, and be entertained in a beautiful green setting. The park will provide a safe and secure environment for individual recreation as well as a venue for programmed outdoor events such as farmer’s markets, concerts, and summer movie nights.

    The community will support a live-work-play environment that promotes wellness and sustainable living through design, amenities, retail mix and programming. The park will host healthy outdoor activities and serve as an example of environmentally conscious design that inspires the people who live, work, and visit.

    Project Details:

    The Grove: A linear component that will be along the west side of North Wolfe Street. It will accommodate a fitness-oriented exercise circuit. Additionally, the Grove will provide opportunities to tell the story of East Baltimore through permanent displays and commemorative art honoring distinguished members of the community.

    The Lawn: A 150’ wide green field designed to support regular exercise and feature community programs such as daily yoga classes or just a pick-up game of soccer.

    The Performance Spot: Located at the southern end of the park at Ashland Avenue, this area’s design will accommodate outdoor performance activities with a flexible stage arrangement. The performance spot will host events such as community concerts, lunchtime or after-work performances, and public movie showings.
