McKeldin Square in Downtown Baltimore reopened Thursday.

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Pratt and Light Streets to highlight the $4 million renovation.

The space includes new landscaping, more trees, terraced seating and public artwork. The yearlong renovation removed a large fountain in the Inner Harbor.

McKeldin Square was named after Theodore R. Mckeldin, a former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor. Officials said the problem at the square was the old fountain blocked the view and an entryway to the Inner Harbor.
