First visit to Quiet Waters the other day and enjoyed a beautiful sunny afternoon on the outdoor skating rink. Reasonable prices and not too crowded. Rental skates and lockers available.

This is a gem of a park just outside of downtown Annapolis. Miles of walking trails, ponds, kayaking/paddle board rental and launch, playgrounds, and several pavilions available for rent. I walk in this park almost daily. It's beautiful! During the winter, the outdoor ice rink is a favorite. The cafe serves up sandwiches and hot chocolate. The park also hosts... More

Quiet Waters is a wonderful place to bike or walk. Even to ice skate during the winter months. Located along the banks of the South River it has acres and acres of meandering trails, many picnic pavilions, play areas for kids, dog parks. I love this park! My only regret is that it's closed on Tuesdays, otherwise it's just perfect.

I love this park. It's a great little escape from the city without feeling overrun. Lots of great walking/running trails with pavilions available for rental. There's also a dock and a fenced in dog play area, and in the winter they have an outdoor skating rink.

A gem in the middle of the city. We walk the perimeter path frequently and enjoy the trees, creeks, marsh and river views. Ice skaters, dog walkers and kayakers all visit, and the occasional art fairs are fun. If you're a senior resident, get the lifetime pass. It's a bargain.

Quiet Waters is a lovely place for a stroll in a beautiful setting and it is populated by some lovely pavilions for family gatherings or celebrations as well as several reception areas and an ice skating rink in winter. All of this was built with tax dollars and most of the ongoing support is from the same source. For a... More

...but so do the rest of us. 5 minutes by water, an hour by land. Tells you something about why this part of the world is all about water. Oh, and for the dog lovers? A great "run" and dog beach.

Lovely park, very well maintained. Great dog park area, and nice ice skating, boat/kayak rentals, music evenings. A real gem.
