The Donald O. Wilson Park is one of six Inner Block Parks in Baltimore’s Harlem Park neighborhood that were in consideration for revitalization in 2022. Donald O. Wilson Park served as a pilot project — if successful, it would catalyze the masterplan and redesign of the rest of these Inner Block Parks into one connected greenway. The park is located directly behind the St. James Terrace Apartments, an affordable independent senior living facility, and owned by the St. James Development Corporation. The St. James Development Corporation, is the organization spearheading this pilot project. They aim to create sustainable sites that meet the real needs of the communities around them.

The project is envisioned as an opportunity to enhance the space for intergenerational use and welcome residents to gather. A threshold at either end of the park will encourage pedestrian use of the park and offer an intentional entry to a place of shade and sanctuary.
