The historic and famed Bethlehem Steel Mill in Sparrows Point is about to breathe new life thanks to Tradepoint Atlantic’s generous donation of a 22-acre waterview park site, located at 1900 Wharf Road in Baltimore.

This project will be the first entirely new park built by Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks in six years, and will fill a longstanding recreational gap in the Edgemere-Sparrows Point area.

Project Highlights

The proposed park plan will be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum designed project that includes:
