Baltimore’s 43 recreation centers will start opening on Saturdays, under a $2.9 billion spending plan approved Tuesday by the City Council.
Only eight rec centers have been open on Saturday since 2017.
Baltimore City Council President Brandon Scott said the details of how late the centers will remain open and what programs will be available to kids still has to be worked out.
“It’s unacceptable that they have not been open before this point,” Scott said. “This needed to happen a long time ago. For me, moving forward things have to be done differently.”
