Parks/Green Spaces

Resting between Boston Street and the harbor, Canton Waterfront Park offers terrific views of the harbor and an easily accessible recreational area. Canton Waterfront Park is positioned as one of the eastern-most access points to the harbor, making the park a useful location for outdoors recreation facilities such as the boat ramp and fishing pier. The park also serves as a convenient starting point for traversing the Waterfront Promenade.

The park is also home to the Korean War Memorial, which features a history of the war and contains the names of 527 Marylanders who died in the conflict.
