Weinberg Park Living Shoreline
Weinberg Park is a passive recreation public park partially donated by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation in the 1990s. The park’s stark quiet and isolation stands in contrast to its close visibility to the Baltimore skyline and in the forefront, the Key Bridge. Near the mouth of the Patapsco River, this parkland is actively eroding, contributing tons of sediment and phosphorus pollution into the lower Patapsco River and the Chesapeake Bay. An ecologically critical tidal pond is also threatened by the erosion and retreat of the existing beach. GTA is working closely with Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Division to devise a low-impact, climate resilient design for over 1,500 linear feet of rapidly eroding shoreline at this site. Design and permitting efforts are underway, with construction slated for 2025.
