My son and I hiked up here from our Convention Center area hotel. It was good but enjoyable walk though pleasant neighborhoods. Once we made it to the top, we enjoyed a great view, a cool breeze, welcome on a warm day and a fun playground.

This historic park is small but offers a panoramic view of downtown Baltimore. Ft McHenry (Of Star Spangled Banner Fame) is just minutes away. I think it is probably the best view of any city's downtown from atop a hill I have seen. Well worth a visit. Also, the Cross St Market is close and the Federal Hill neighborhood is... More

They have totally redone the playground since our last visit. The mud pit under the swings has been replaced by foam blocks, making it much safer for little ones. The only negative is the lack of restroom facilities, making it necessary to go to the Inner Harbor area (difficult for little ones when the need is urgent).

A good place to see the harbour, yet if only they could add some restaurants or something it would be better

This is one of my favorite places in Baltimore. Federal Hill is a place you can go with your loved one, your dogs, your friends or by yourself to admire my hometown, Baltimore. It is incredibly scenic with countless places for photo ops. There are benches and statues and even a beautiful American flag at the top of the hill... More

My kids and I love coming here when we visit Baltimore. They like climbing all the stairs to the top, and the playground. It's the best view of the Harbor - watching the boats, seeing the skyline, and feeling the breeze are highlights for the whole family. Parking can be tricky.

It was a great way to spend half a day learning about our Country's history. The Park rangers are very helpful . The staff inside did a great job telling us what to see and do. Make sure to go inside to see the movie. A GREAT story. We took a water taxi and the kids loved it

We cannot go to the Harbor without trekking the Hill, it’s a tradition. The stairs provide a great after lunch workout. We usually walk around both levels and exit via the far corner, wiggle through the brick houses near the Visionary Museum, cross the street, and then walk along the water on the other side of the high-end condos, which...

Nice park, great view at night and seems pretty safe. Closes around dusk or maybe just a little later.

From the Visionary Art Museum side, the hike up hill is strenuous, but totally worth it! The view is amazing. The playground for young kids was fabulous. Plenty of green space for throwing a disk or just people watching. Great little places in the surrounding neighborhood, as well.
