Westport Community Park & Florence Cummins Playground Master Plan

Working with the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, Floura Teeter has developed a master plan for the 3.7-acre Westport Community Park and Florence Cummins Playground.

Over several decades. the Park has lost many programmed activities, leaving residents of this once-thriving community with minimal recreational resources.  Based on extensive input from the community, the design team developed multiple concepts that incorporated a number of important components:

  • Confirmation of the park’s identity in the neighborhood
  • Improved accessibility
  • Better signage
  • Connections to the local school
  • Lighting and safety considerations
  • Opportunities for both informal and programmed play

Sponsored by KaBOOM and the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, installation of new fitness equipment represents the first phase of construction and was completed in 2019.
