In 2010 we announced our goal to make the Harbor swimmable and fishable by 2020. To make sure we have a road map to help get us there the Partnershiphas prepared a Comprehensive Plan to Clean the Harbor, which was released in December 2010. With the help many others in government, non-profits, throughout our neighborhoods and region, we will turn the currently polluted and trash strewn Harbor water into a clean water where marine life can thrive, the water is clean enough to swim in most days of the year, and public health threat is removed.
For more info, go to the Healthy Harbor website.
Why spend time sitting in traffic and polluting the air when you could spend your commute time more productively? A smarter way to get there promotes alternative ways to travel to and from the Harbor, saving commuter’s time, money and carbon footprint.
A park for the imagination
A new, one-of-a-kind Waterfront park opened in May,
2012. Pierce’s Park, located on the Waterfront’s Pier 5,
features native plantings, natural play areas for children,
and original sculptures designed for exploration and fun.
West Shore Park and Walter Sondheim Fountain
Waterfront family fun
A large ‘great lawn’ on the Harbor’s west shore opened in 2008 thanks to the City of Baltimore, and the Walter Sondheim interactive Fountain followed in 2009, creating new free, family fun opportunities at the Harbor. Waterfront Partnership manages the Park and provides a host of crafts, play activities and entertainment all summer long, geared toward families in the area.
Stay Afloat on Waterfront Partnership!
