In honor of National Women's Month, the Department of Recreation & Parks will be honoring Helen Mackall. Helen Mackall Park was dedicated by the Rosemont Community on Saturday, December 4, 1971 to honor Mrs. Helen Mackall-a crossing guard for James Mosher Elementary School who lost her leg while saving the life of a 6-year old Bonita Lynn Lineberger at the corner of Lafayette and Wheeler Avenues.
Helen Mackall was the first African American to receive the Baltimore City Police Medal of Honor. In her honor we will be sprucing up the park name after her.This will include, cleaning up trash, planting, mulching, painting and more.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
