Eager Park

Cities grow and change, and for most of us, the place we call home is defined by its people, its history, its community and its aspirations for the future.

In East Baltimore, there is a historic neighborhood that is experiencing a revival. At its heart will be a new park, named Eager Park, and the Henderson-Hopkins School, the first new public K-8 school in East Baltimore in 20 years. More than 600 houses and apartments have been built around Eager Park. The neighborhood now offers housing in a whole range of affordability from new and restored townhomes to mid-rise and high-rise apartment buildings.

EBDI was excited to host the second annual Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards for Community Impact in Eager Park in December.

Congratulations and thank you to all 15 of our awardees. We look forward to recognizing even more community and business leaders in 2024.

Special thanks to 16 on the Park for hosting us; to our sponsors, Fulton Bank and Anne Riggle, for making this event possible; and to Doni Glover with BMORENews.com for creating this amazing opportunity for change-makers all across the country. We’d like to specially recognize Josh Manns with Legacy Awards & Recognition for carrying on his father’s legacy and producing the awards for us.

We also thank our elected officials (and their representatives) for attending and helping to make this an even more special occasion - U. S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen, Del. Stephanie Smith, Del. Caylin Young,  Baltimore City Council President Nick J. Mosby, Councilman Robert Stokes and Councilman Antonio Glover.

Lastly, thanks to everyone who came out to support!

A few highlights from our June 2023 Community Market:

🍎 We gave away 52 boxes’ worth of FREE fresh produce—apples, oranges, bananas, strawberries, corn, bell peppers, spinach, kale, cucumbers, collard greens, eggs and more—to help increase food security in the community.

🌽 There were close to 20 vendors, ALL local, ALL minority-owned and nearly all women-owned!

🧁 Kids (and some adults, too!) enjoyed free face painting and hula-hooping.

🌮 Several community partners joined us to provide free resources to the community.
