Canton Waterfront Park

Although it's not managed by the CCA, Canton Waterfront Park is one of the most popular parks in Canton. Boasting eight acres of gorgeous harbor views, a mile of waterfront promenade, and plenty of green space, it's the place to be for picnics, festivals, and just having a relaxing good time.

You'll find WTMD's First Thursday concerts here, along with a Baltimore Water Taxi stop and the Korean War Memorial. It's a great place for viewing fireworks (especially over Fort McHenry), airshows, and the annual parade of tall ships that come into the harbor.

Canton Dog Park

Because our amazing quality of life extends to furry four-legged friends! Bring yours to play, socialize, and enjoy some safe, off-leash time outdoors.

Located at 3221 Toone St., the park is open from dusk to dawn.


What is a dog park?
A dog park is fenced area where dogs can run off leash and socialize in a safe and secure area. A dog park provides a place for people and dogs to relax, exercise and socialize.

Park Features

  1. Open space where dogs can run and play in a legal “off-leash” area;
  2. A double gated perimeter fence, divided into two sections: one for large dogs, and one for smaller or older dogs;
  3. Shade, nearby parking, routine maintenance, and a notice board for dog park rules and related information.
  4. Water source outside the park for drinking.
  5. Bags (donated by park users) for scooping the poop.

Dog Park Rules
The Canton Dog Park is open and free for all dog owners to use, but we request that all users treat the space, other dogs, and other humans with respect. While there is no fee or registration required for this park to be used, we recommend that all dog owners register their dogs with the city and acquire a pet license.

The park is open from dusk to dawn.

Two Rivers Park

Named for the Hudson and Potomac rivers, Two Rivers Park is located at the intersection of S. Potomac and Hudson Streets. In 2003, Baltimore City considered selling the land to a developer who would have built houses on the site. The CCA, behind the leadership of Block Captain Randy Capone, worked together with City and State officials to save the land and raise money to improve it.

The park’s “birthday” is Sept. 16, 2006, the 6th Annual James W. Rouse Community Service Day, when people from Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse (SBER) joined the community to install benches and plant trees.

To learn more about how you can help fundraise or volunteer for the park, contact Christian Taylor at

Dypski Park

Dypski Park is a 2.5-acre “pocket park” at 1225 S. Ellwood Ave. across Boston St. from the Canton Waterfront Park on the north side of the Du Burns Arena. The park will be closed from fall of 2017 to fall 2018 for a complete renovation.

The Friends of Dypski Park know that happy kids make a happy neighborhood. Join a team dedicated to happy, active, playful kids. In anticipation of the much-needed renovation of their beloved facility, the Friends are currently hosting parties to celebrate the pending improvements.
