Family Fun

Kids love Downtown Baltimore, but more importantly parents do too. There is a lot to love here with family-friendly attractions like the world-renowned National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center.

Beyond the expansive buildings and charming architecture, is a quietly thriving infrastructure of family friendly organizations. The Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance and the Downtown Baltimore Jewish Community Center have a plethora of information about living in the city with children, hosting fun events for wee-ones, and they have an active list serve for residents. The Walters Art Museum has free drop in art activities for young creatives every weekend and Cool Progeny has set out to make urban living fun for everyone by throwing super hero parties, play dates and more.

Where can kids play in a concrete jungle? Everywhere. Downtown has parks and plazas every couple of blocks. Add a stroll through Pierce’s Park or West Shore Park on your outings list and your kids can enjoy artistic play equipment and water fountains.
