West Shore Park, Baltimore

Baltimore's Inner Harbor renaissance began in the early 1980s. Today, the waterfront development continues. Despite its prominent harbor location, West Shore Park had leftover and disparate elements. Sandwiched between the Maryland Science Center and the Baltimore Visitor Center the three-acre space needed a remake. Hord Coplan Macht teamed with Thomas Balsley and Associates of NYC and the city of Baltimore to develop this public park, now the city's front door to the waterfront.
Over three acres in size, West Shore Park provides much needed downtown green space. A large lawn is perfect for events. Vendor pavilions, a variety of sitting areas, horticultural gardens and an interactive fountain are additions. The park is above the harbor promenade, with an animated edge offering a variety of seating and overlooks. The recently installed interactive fountain has become a major attraction, with children and adults drawn to the ever changing, multicolored water jets.
