Ignored by and large for decades as the Inner Harbor, Fells Point and other harbor locales redeveloped, the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River is now due for a beautification.

Three national landscape architecture firms have submitted proposals, unveiled today, for a planned waterfront park stretching 11 miles of shoreline in Cherry Hill, Westport, Brooklyn, Port Covington and other neighborhoods in view of the Hanover Street Bridge.
