Historical Note

The Waterfront Promenade in Baltimore, Maryland is a public pathway for pedestrians and cyclists that connects 66 development sites and public spaces along the city's formerly industrial waterfront. Privately owned parcels adjacent to the Promenade require easements for public access. As of November 2022, the Promenande's five-mile pathway stretched from Canton Crossing to the east, around the Inner Harbor, all the way to Tidepoint on the South Baltimore peninsula. While many portions of the Promenande are complete and accessible to the public, at least 10 segments are either temporary or incomplete.
