Top of the Hill of the Inner Harbor area -- Greenery overlooking the Harbor is breathtaking. Children's activities in the park. Nice spot to stop and rest and enjoy the view.

Worth the walk up the stairs. The street closest to the science center has 2 hr free parking. Great view of the lovely harbor.

Just the fact the city allows this park area for people and didn't sell this area for condo development should be commended. Awesome view of the city. Great for photography.

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.
