About the Masonville Cove Connector

The Connector Project's Mission:

Creating Safe and Equitable Access to the First Urban Wildlife Partnership in the United States

Masonville Cove is an educational and recreational community treasure in South Baltimore, but it can be hard to get to. The new Connector, a shared use path currently in development, will provide access to the waterfront for the communities near Masonville Cove. Once complete, the Masonville Cove Connector will fulfill a long-standing commitment of the Maryland Port Administration’s Dredged Material Management Program.

  • Establish safe, convenient, and equitable access 

  • Connect local communities to a unique recreational asset

  • Integrate Masonville Cove into the larger outdoor recreational landscape in Baltimore
