What was once an overgrown, neglected park was transformed by the volunteers and operations staff of Annapolis Maritime Museum into a safe and beautiful waterfront park for the Annapolis community. A space once used for storage is now a clean and comfortable environmental education center, complete with two classrooms, updated facilities, and a green roof, which provides an extra layer of vegetation in an otherwise urban environment, reducing both stormwater runoff and the urban heat island effect. Nestled into this beautiful, sanctuary space is the Nature Sacred Bench and journal calling the many visitors, students, and staff of Annapolis Maritime Museum to find respite and reflection.
