Formerly owned by Mr. Winfield S. and Mrs. Florence E. Cahill, the Cahill Recreation Center was donated to the city of Baltimore for “humanitarian and charitable purposes”. In 1969, it was destroyed by fire and was rebuilt in 1972.
Today Cahill is the flagship performing arts center of the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks. Children and adults come to the center to engage in a variety of culturally enriching programs.
In 2010 community members came together to create the Cahill Performing Arts Council, Inc. to raise funds for the center in response to city budget deficits and threats to cut funding to the Department of Recreation and Parks. Out of this group the The Friends of Cahill were born. The Friends of Cahill are recreation center alumni and community members who are committed to sharing their resources to ensure the center continues to provide quality programming.
Won’t you join the center’s growing list of friends, partners and supporters which includes: The Family League of Baltimore City, Maryland Public Television, Charm City Dancers, Hope Solutions, Inc. and many others.
