Interpretive Graphics for Waterfront Park
National Aquarium in Baltimore
A Waterfront Park celebrating the Chesapeake Bay Watershed will offer Inner Harbor visitors a gateway to the Chesapeake by telling stories of the Bay’s magic and its conservation challenges while addressing the role every individual can play in preserving the Bay. The Park is part of a redevelopment of Pier 3 that includes a ten-story building featuring a waterfall, visible from the Park, reminiscent of those found in Western Maryland. The free and fully accessible Park will transform a concrete area into a “Slice of Maryland,” that simulates the 3 major watershed habitat zones. Interpretive graphics in each habitat will introduce conservation concepts and strategies. A granite Watershed map inlaid in the plaza will provide a context and location for staffed interpretation and educational activities. An audioscape of wildlife sounds will increase the natural ambience of the experience.
