Shake & Bake Family Fun Center

Yes, it is trueThe Bake Is Back: Friday, March 23, 2018!

Baltimore City Recreation and Parks (BCRP) owns and  operates the Shake & Bake Family Fun Center in the historic Upton community in West Baltimore. “The Bake” as it is affectionately known, has been a local, iconic staple since 1982. Named after Baltimore Colts wide receiver, Glenn “Shake & Bake” Doughty, the facility was temporarily closed in 2017 to address concerns of maintenance, structural soundness, and cleanliness. BCRP looks forward to bringing the Shake & Bake Family Fun Center back to the community. 

Join us for the reopening celebration of the first floor* on Friday, March 23, 2018. Community members and guests can expect refreshments, giveaways, and live entertainment.
