Baltimore City Recreation and Parks

Creating a Greener, Healthier City

We have worked diligently to pass legislation that would provide more funding for recreation and parks. A Bill we worked on was ultimately amended onto another, HB 462, and on Monday we celebrated a major victory when that piece of legislation was signed into law by Governor Larry Hogan. The City will ultimately receive $6 million annually for Recreation and Parks. These funds can be used to realize my vision to build high quality recreation facilities, create better programming and better upkeep our parks.
