Outdoor Fitness Equipment Installed at West Covington Park in Port Covington

| July 13, 2018 | 0 Comments

South Baltimoreans have a new spot for outdoor fitness as the Port Covington Development Team has installed outdoor fitness equipment at West Covington Park. The Port Covington Development Team is comprised of owners Sagamore Development Company and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group. Weller Development Company is leading development and construction on the 235-acre project.

“As the Port Covington project continues to gain momentum, we are excited to be able to continue to improve the beautiful green space this property has to offer,” said Marc Weller, partner of Weller Development Company in a statement to SouthBMore.com. “To that end, Weller Development has installed six pieces of fitness equipment at West Covington Park along the Bike Path that is being developed in Port Covington. The new fitness equipment was funded by the Port Covington Development Team and is available to the public free of charge. West Covington Park is open to the public every day, from dawn until dusk.”

The new pieces will allow users to do dips, pull ups, sit ups, along with core, back, and chest exercises. The Port Covington Development Team owns and maintains West Covington Park.

The bike and pedestrian path system in Port Covington, which is also funded by the Port Covington Development Team, continues to expand and allows users to avoid traveling on and crossing Hanover St. It also provides protected bike lanes along Cromwell St.

Additional public space improvements taken on by the Port Covington Development Team include landscaped medians throughout the area and a new mural. East Waterfront Park has also been partially completed in front of Sagamore Spirit Distillery.

Construction of new infrastructure is currently underway in Phase 1B of the Port Covington project and Weller Development is expecting to begin the construction of three new buildings in the fourth quarter of this year. The buildings will be positioned along Cromwell St. near the Sagamore Spirit Distillery.

A new road, Purple St., is also under construction and will provide access to The Baltimore Sun’s Sun Park. Weller Development will redevelop Sun Park’s current parking lots and entrance along Cromwell St. New parking lots are also currently being constructed behind Sun Park along McComas St. The Baltimore Sun is moving 300 employees into a redeveloped space at Sun Park this summer.

Port Covington is expected to be a multi-decade redevelopment project.
