BALTIMORE — The long-awaited Rash Field Park renovation project takes a major step.
City and state officials held a ground-breaking ceremony on Tuesday, for the first phase of the nearly $17-million project at the Rusty Scupper Restaurant on Key Highway.
The eight-acre park will feature a modern pavilion with a 2,000 square foot café, rain gardens and a rooftop deck.
"This park is for Baltimore, for Baltimore families," said Laurie Schwartz, president of Waterfront Partnership.
The park will also include a children's nature park, a kinetic playground, a small skatepark and a shady lawn.
Phase one is expected to be completed by next spring or summer.
