While we all love to go to Baltimore’s Waterfront to just walk around and enjoy the views, we know during these times it may not be possible or just a little more difficult to get there as often as we’d like. We’re introducing a mini video series called “Waterfront Pauses” that bring a piece of the Waterfront to you. Although these short 1 minute videos won’t make up for a leisurely stroll around the Waterfront, we hope they’ll at least bring a moment of peace and serenity to your otherwise busy day. We invite you take a pause and enjoy some of the beautiful sights and sounds at the Waterfront.
Pause #1 | Native Blue Flag Irises
Native Blue Flag Irises are all around the harbor, but it’s not everyday you can catch a visit from a bumble bee!
Pause #2 | Willow Tunnel at Pierce’s Park
The Willow Tunnel is a living play structure at Pierce’s Park on Pier 5 that is fun for kids and adults and brings a bit of nature to Baltimore’s Waterfront.
Pause #3 | Mr. Trash Wheel
Mr. Trash Wheel combines old and new technology to harness the power of water and sunlight to collect litter and debris flowing down the Jones Falls River, preventing it from entering the Inner Harbor and Chesapeake Bay.
Pause #4 | Rain Garden at Pierce’s Park
The rain garden at Pierce’s Park is loaded with native plants that act as nature’s purifier, absorbing and filtering rainwater before it empties into the Inner Harbor and Chesapeake Bay. Check out our Waterfront Nature Walk for more information and a self-guided tour of native plantings around the Waterfront!
