Put this area with the memorials and the businesses around it, and the park itself would become a business!

This gives one a good taste of what Baltimore must have been like when it was ONLY a port city. Even though the Inner Harbor with all its restaurants are now there, Federal Hill still shows one why that port was so important all through our nation's history.

Best view of inner harbor is at this point. This park maintains it's peacefulness. Parking can be a challenge but its worth the trouble.

This is a park on a hill which over looks the Inner Harbor area. You have to walk up steps to get there. This use to be a fort but it is converted into a park. There are swings for the children and benches to seat on. This park is off the harbor area and provides a great view of... More

I was at Federal Hill on a rainy day. Despite the rain, the view of the city skyline was breathtaking. I think Federal Hill offers the best view of the city. There were also a few signs providing some historical background on the hill. It is a short walk from the Inner Harbor, and a must see when visiting Baltimore.

We've been coming to Inner Harbor and Fells Point for 20-odd years now and have only crested Federal Hill Park once, our first year! Walked past the Science Center and stopped to drink our water before continuing on the Promenade and we looked across the street and up the hill and thought "why not"?! The view is incredible and a... More

I take a walk around "the hill" every day with my dog. Great new park for the kids and just a wonderful view of the water and local attractions. A must visit spot in Baltimore.

The climb to the top of Federal Hill is well worth the effort. The inner harbor and the city scape both are so wonderful to behold from an elevated view. The park has historical significance as well. This is a must-go-see attraction for Baltimore.
