The McKean Miracle: New park opens in Easterwood Neighborhood


The Easterwood/Sandtown Park and Playground located at 1500 N. McKean Avenue was created after the demolition of buildings in fall 2016 through Maryland’s Project C.O.R.E. Initiative. (Creating Opportunities for Renewal and Enterprise) is a multi-year partnership between the State of Maryland and the City of Baltimore supporting blight removal and redevelopment in Baltimore City.
