Today is an historic day. It marks the opening of Morrell Park Community Center, the first recreation center in Baltimore to be built from the ground up in ten years. It’s also the first recreation center to open in the city since Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake closed four over the past two years.

The new recreation center is 17,000 square feet and will be a resource for adults as well as young children, as part of Rawlings-Blake’s plan to serve more people with fewer but better-equipped centers.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Morrell Park Community Center houses “an open gym with basketball hoops and bleachers, a computer lab, fitness room, senior room, community room, arts and crafts room and areas outside for eating and playing.”
