We LOVE going to quiet waters park with our one year old daughter. The playground is really nice as there is a section for smaller kids and a larger section for kids above four probably. Sometimes in the summer it is a little hot because there isn't much shade. There are also a lot of trails to walk/run and some... More

Quiet Waters Park has everything from an ice skating rink in the winter to miles of walking trails and secluded picnic areas. You almost always see deer wandering about. The gallery usually has exceptional art work, much from local artists. The gazebos overlooking the South River are often the site of weddings and then the attendees return to the beautiful... More

Who doesn't like a park on a hot day? My six-year-old granddaughter can't get enough of them. (Go figure!) So, first stop: Playground. Unlike other park designers, these guys really had their mulch together. I mean they built the playground on the lower level of a hill and the benches under the cover of shade trees on the top of...

Beautiful Annapolis park for the whole family. Walking trails, water activities, play grounds, pavilions for family gatherings, art gallery, outdoor music events. What's not to love here?

Quiet Waters Park is a great little getaway. Lots of hiking trails, an ice rink in the winter, and canoe/kayak rentals. My wife and I get out here every few weeks, either for a brisk hike, or to occasionally get out on the water. As one would expect, there are lots of families here, taking the kids for a bike... More

Quiet Waters park rents kayaks, canoes, water boards and peddle boats for about $20/hr. It's a great place to try out the sports. It is also a place where you can bring your own. The cove is a favorite over nighter for power boats and sailboats. If you want to take a closer look, check out my video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXlrMfLJqP4 This... More

I bring my dogs here because there is a gray dog park. Actually there are two - one for large dogs and one for small dogs. I have a Sheltie who probably would be fine in the large dog area but at times seems overwhelmed and the small dog area is better for him. I really appreciate having two areas.... More

My husband and I made a short trip through the park the day we arrived in Annapolis for a two-night stay. I wish we had had more time to enjoy all the park has to offer. We walked one of the trails down to the kayak rental (we didn't have the time to go out ourselves), took a quick tour... More

We were there on a Saturday in June. We had never been there and just decided to try something new. It really is very nicely laid out and kept up, and we walked on some of the trails, and had a picnic lunch in the woods. There are a lot of nice facilities for group events and cookouts. The only...
