BALTIMORE (AP) -- More than three decades ago, Harborplace transformed Baltimore's waterfront. Now a local group is working to modernize the area with new parks and attractions.

The Daily Record of Baltimore ( reports that a study expected in September could include recommendations for space for concessions, picnics and public access to the water.

Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore President Laurie Schwartz traveled to New York last month with city representatives and local architects to visit waterfront parks for inspiration. She says the first phase of upgrades will focus on the area from Inner Harbor east to Fells Point, but they will eventually stretch from Locust Point to Canton.

City planning Director Thomas Stosur says cost estimates for upgrades have not been finalized, but funding will come from public and private sources.
