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
  • Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)
  • Hiking
  • Biking (mountain biking, cruising and pump track riding)
  • Fishing
  • Disc golfing
  • Skateboarding

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.
