You can see almost everything; very pretty views. But the park is very small so don't allot time to it unless you want to picnic, etc.

We were in Baltimore for a quick family getaway last weekend. After exploring the Inner Harbor, we decided to visit the massive green hill that had been beckoning since we arrived. What we found was a small park with an adorable playground for young children...More
