Maryland Officials To Unveil Plans For 'Inner Harbor 2.0' In Baltimore

Maryland officials are planning a makeover for Baltimore's 40-year-old Inner Harbor.

The Daily Record reports the plans to upgrade the downtown attraction, called Inner Harbor 2.0, are being unveiled today.

A top priority of the plan is making Rash Field a "destination park'' with a kayak launch, a stage, outdoor dining, a garden and a playground. It also calls for a bridge connecting Pier 6 and Rash Field.

State funds have been requested to fund Rash Field renovations.

The plan is based on a study that found the Inner Harbor attracted 14 million visitors in 2012.
