Shake & Bake Family Fun Center

The Bake is Back

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 reopened the *Shake & Bake Family Fun Center on Friday, March 23, 2018.
