Building and Strengthening Neighborhoods and People

The 29th Street Community Center

What was once the Barclay Recreation Center and shut down in 2011, is now the 29th Street Community we all have come to know and love. If you would like to read more about our history, click here.

The mission of the 29th Street Community Center is to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people by bringing together residents of north central Baltimore through meaningful community building and high-quality enrichment programming for all ages and background.
