Fleming Park

Our History, Our Future

Fleming Park is a 16-acre county park that was once a community hub, but that has fallen from its original glory after decades of impacts along the shoreline from highway construction to industrial pollution, to erosion and climate change. Together, we can rebuild this treasure and reconnect with the beautiful landscape we call home.

Protection & Recreation

The Fleming Park project aims to protect the Turner Station community from climate change, improve water quality and habitat in Bear Creek, increase waterfront recreational opportunities in Baltimore County, and pioneer strategies for the innovative reuse and beneficial use of dredged material in the Chesapeake Bay.

Public Health, Habitat Restoration, Coastal Resiliency and Environmental Justice

The conceptual designs of Fleming Park were developed by Mahan Rykiel Associates through the internationally recognized collaborative Design with Dredge program (Maryland Port Administration, MES, Mahan Rykiel Associates, Cornell University), which aims to develop landscape strategies for the innovative reuse and beneficial use of dredged material from the Baltimore Harbor and Chesapeake Bay shipping channels to enhance public health and awareness, habitat restoration, coastal resiliency, and environmental justice.
