Mayor Scott, Rec & Parks Announce Additional Renovations at Ambrose Kennedy Pool Groundbreaking

Baltimore Mayor Brandon M. Scott and officials from the Baltimore City Recreation & Parks (BCRP) recently announced additional renovations to the Ambrose Kennedy Pool at Henrietta Lacks Educational Park. The announcement was made during a groundbreaking event on July 10, 2023.


According to a press release from the Mayor’s office, the renovations will include upgrades to the pool’s mechanical systems and improvements to the pool deck and surrounding areas. The project is expected to cost $3.5 million and will be funded by city and state funds.

The Ambrose Kennedy Pool in East Baltimore has long been a popular destination for residents looking to beat the summer heat. However, the pool has fallen into disrepair recently, with many residents complaining about broken equipment and poor maintenance.

The new renovations are part of a more significant effort by the city to improve its parks and recreational facilities. In recent years, the city has invested millions of dollars in upgrading its parks, playgrounds, and other outdoor spaces, mainly focusing on underserved communities.

In a statement, Mayor Scott emphasized the importance of investing in the city’s parks and recreational facilities. “Our parks and recreational facilities are essential to the health and well-being of our residents,” he said. “We must continue to invest in these spaces to ensure that they are safe, accessible, and enjoyable for all Baltimoreans.”

Community leaders and residents have welcomed the news of the Ambrose Kennedy Pool renovations, saying that it will help to improve the quality of life for residents in East Baltimore. They have also called on the city to continue investing in its parks and recreational facilities, particularly in underserved communities where access to green space and outdoor activities is often limited.

The renovations to the Ambrose Kennedy Pool are expected to be completed by the summer of 2024, just in time for the next swimming season.
