Last summer, the Waterfront Partnership laid out initial guidelines for a makeover at the park where you may or may not have played volleyball between Inner Harbor and Federal Hill. But the Rash Field redesign isn’t done yet.
The public will have a chance to weigh in on any potential new amenities at the park at public meetings being held over the coming months. The first meeting public meeting is scheduled for Jan. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Maryland Science Center, and organizers also have a website where you can leave comments.
In September, design firm Mahan Rykiel was selected from among 13 bids to lead the new designs. They’re working from general guidelines that include new space for fitness, more outdoor games, events and a cafe. Beach volleyball would remain, but the carousel and Pride of Baltimore memorial would have to find a new home.
Four proposed redesigns for the space have been floated in the last 20 years, which is what appears to make public input important with this proposal. How else will city leaders know what we want if we don’t tell them?
