The column cleaning at the Eastern Avenue entrance is part of an the entrance improvement project Baltimore City Recreation & Parks (BCRP) started about 5-6yrs ago and discussed with the Friends. BCRP completed the entrances at Patterson and Baltimore, and Baltimore and Linwood. Now they are working on Eastern and Patterson Park.
Due to the cost and size of the project, the contract work for this entrance was broken down into 3 phases: 1) the column cleaning and restoration, 2) pathway improvements up to the steps, and 3) the steps. The pathway improvements up to the steps are anticipated to begin in June/July 2013.
