The redesign of Rash Field falls into the category of correcting a missed opportunity. The area along the harbor's south edge, which has been home over the years to a hodgepodge of attractions including sand volleyball courts and a trapeze school, has tended to represent more of a barrier than an invitation. Not only would the plan provide it with a more permanent identity — including a park, playground, sculpture garden, outdoor cafes, kayak launch and floating swimming pool — but it would also provide better transitions between the Inner Harbor and the American Visionary Art Museum, Federal Hill Park and the adjoining neighborhoods. Construction of an underground parking garage would lift the park area to a roughly even grade with Key Highway. It would become South Baltimore's front lawn.
