Michael Cross-Barnet

Mike has spent most of his life in cities, but has always felt very connected to nature and wild places too. He has dedicated himself to working or volunteering with community-based nonprofits for the past decade. Mike loves Baltimore and his neighborhood of Reservoir Hill, and wants to see them thrive.

Mike is thrilled to be a part of making this park a true asset for the community, where people of diverse ages, races and religions can come to play, learn, relax, and connect with each other.
