Elijah’s Park at Baltimore Peninsula Honors the Late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings

A new park in south Baltimore has been named after the late U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings, who died in 2019 and would have turned 73 today.

Elijah’s Park is the name of a public park created as part of Baltimore Peninsula, the mixed-use community overlooking the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River.

Located between Rye Street Market and 250 Mission, the 28,000-square-foot green space opened several weeks ago as Triangle Park. Representatives for the development team behind Baltimore Peninsula – a group led by MAG Partners and MacFarlane Partners, with investments from businessman Kevin Plank and others — said they decided to name it after Cummings as a tribute to his legacy as a champion for Baltimore.
