Our 
Story

Our 
Transition

Our goal at the 29th Street Community Center is to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people by bringing together residents of Baltimore City through meaningful community building and high-quality enrichment programming for all ages and backgrounds.

In 2011, the Barclay Recreation Center was closed by the Baltimore Department of Recreation  and Parks. With the steadfast support of community residents and other stakeholders, Greater Homewood Community Corporation proposed restoring and reopening the Center. In 2013, the  fully renovated building reopened as the 29th Street Community Center.  

Since its rebirth, the Center has offered over 100 unique and diverse programs, dozens of  community-strengthening events, and essential public services to thousands of  community residents of all ages and backgrounds. 

In July 2021, the 29th Street Community Center officially transitioned to a new nonprofit entity, the 29th Street Community Center, Inc. We have an ambitious vision for our future and cannot wait to share our dreams with all of our community.
