Baltimore City Department of Public Works is closing public access to a section of the Gwynns Falls Trail from Frederick Avenue to Baltimore Street during sewer reconstruction and has provided a detour for trail users two blocks east on South Catherine Street which is well marked with signs. Work on this section of the Trail is expected to last until early 2015.
All Baltimore City Recreation Centers will close at 6:00 pm today (Wednesday, Nov 26). Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Baltimore City Recreation and Parks issues three types of Park Use Permits for events. Please use the proper application that corresponds to your event type.
Event applicants can now apply to reserve park areas for event use & street closures all on one merged application. Baltimore City Recreation and Parks and Baltimore City Department of General Services have merged their previously separate event applications. Event organizers now have the choice of delivering the application with both application fees to either Recreation and Parks Permits Office, 3001 East Drive, in Druid Hill Park or Department of General Services Permits Office, 200 N. Holliday Street. You will still receive separate permits for the street closures and park areas from each of the agencies, but you only have to apply once. See the Guide to Special Events link below that includes the application for additional information.
Applications must be received at least 75 days prior to event date. Non-Refundable application fee of $75 for Park Events. Event Impact fees will also be assessed based upon location chosen and size of event. Other fees may apply for additional permits, see Special Event Packet.
Applications must be received 75 days prior to event date. Non-Refundable Application Fee: $75. Event Impact Fees vary according to location.
Applications must be received 30 days prior to event date. Non-refundable application fee: $35. Park Impact Fees and Pavilion fees vary by location.
