Outdoor Programs

Outdoor Rec Program

Baltimore city is home to almost 4,600 acres of parkland, three stream valleys, and miles of bike and natural surface trails. We have over 25 miles of waterfront, three public boat launches, dozens of crabbing and fishing piers, and one of the largest urban wilderness areas on the east coast.


With so many natural resources, BCRP continues to develop and expand outdoor and natural recreational opportunities. Outdoor Recreation opportunities in Baltimore include camping, canoeing, kayaking, boating, sailing, hiking, biking, trails, fishing, crabbing, birding, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, rollerblading, disc golf, kiting, climbing, sledding, cross-country skiing, challenge courses, mountain boarding and more!

These activities are healthy lifelong leisure activities that can be pursued at any age and foster a sense of connection to nature. With the natural infrastructure of Baltimore, these activities provide social, personal, economic and environmental benefits for all enthusiasts
