Did you miss the Mayor's State of the City Address?

Baltimore City Recreation and Parks is honored to be highlighted as a part of Mayor Pugh's State of the City Address. Mayor Pugh recognized the vast number of improvements and renovations we are working to bring to the communities we serve.  Here is a segment of her speech in regards to BCRP.


"Reggie Moore, our Recreation and Parks Director, your team has led the way to improving parks, building new recreation centers - adding to the 43 across the City you operate, while building two new recreation centers - Cahill and Middle Branch in Cherry Hill. We are currently renovating Bocek and Towanda, with plans to also renovate Mary E. Rodman, Medfield and Edgewood Lyndhurst, as well as renovating the Oliver Pool that has been closed for ten years. With the support of our State delegation, we will be able to renovate six more pools in the City where our children will be able to swim for free. These centers also open to provide our children with activities and meals when our schools are closed. I look forward to lighting the torch launching our newly-established summer games in Olympic fashion, with a ceremony culminating on the steps of the War Memorial Plaza. 

Besides the opening of Shake & Bake with a new skating floor, 500 pairs of new skates, new concession stands, meeting rooms, and big screen TVs, the bowling alley is expected to reopen with new lanes and other amenities in April."

- Mayor Catherine E. Pugh, 2019
