Beautiful Views

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 that also had the most spectacular views. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around on the beautiful... More

This is one of the great places at inner harbor. Just a short walk from the science museum end. It's a nice place to relax, slow done and enjoy.

This park is a terrific place to get a panoramic view of the Baltimore harbor or just to walk the dog or sit on a bench and read or relax. There are several plaques to learn about the history of Federal Hill.

I moved to the Baltimore Area in late August and made it to the last Free Movie Night on the Hill. It was amazing. Parking is limited, so I parked on Boston and took the water taxi there and an uber back with a few friends. Bring a blanket and maybe some pillows bc there is no seating, just you... More

Actually, in my opinion, the best view of the inner harbor. Confusing sings, but free street parking is available at the park before 6PM. I visited all of the main attractions in the area and this one is right up at the top, even though it's just a park.

This is the best walk in a park in Baltimore in my opinion. There is a canon and bench where you can look over Baltimore harbor and see a good part of the city. There are paved walkways which are well taken care of for joggers and walkers alike. The best part is sitting on the bench for a few... More

This park overlooks the Baltimore skyline as well as the inner harbor. The views here are way better than anything else you will see in the city. There is also a bit of interesting history here, including the use of the cannons that still sit on the hill, as well as a spot where hangings use to occur just around... More
