Whoever said “The best things in life are free,” must have been thinking about the Baltimore City Recreation and Parks department, which provides affordable, year-round leisure and recreational activities for citizens of all ages and abilities. Facilities include 262 parks, 120+ playgrounds, 170 athletic fields, 110 tennis courts, 101 basketball courts, 18 picnic groves, 12 pavilion groves, 3 dog parks, 25+ miles of biking and hiking trails, and 32 historic structures.
During the summer, activities at the parks don’t end when the sun goes down. Beginning in June 2017 is the second year of the popular Rhythms & Reels, a collaborative community program of free movies and concerts–140 events at 32 locations.
So, grab your blankets, coolers and kids and check the schedule for films and concerts in a park near you.
