Downtown Frederick has a winner here. The time and effort to make this an event area has been worth their effort. It's not the "River Walk", but it is a great beginning. If there is an event going on in the Park, take the time...More

A nice afternoon stroll. Frederick public library was nicer than expected and had an outside patio overlooking the creek. Man made waterfalls were nice as well as the painted bridges.
