Ship pilots used to man this hill looking for potential business, ships approaching the harbor, because of its' great views. It still has those same great views from the south side of the city.

You have to climb the hill to get to the top to see incredible views of the Inner Harbor and surrounding area. The view makes it worth it. Park is clean and well maintained. We were here during the Run to Remember race from the Trade Center to Federal Hill on a gorgeous Sunday morning. This added to the mood.

My cousin walked us up here after dinner. The views are pretty amazing. Love city lights against the water. We were here in the dark and there are some interesting characters up here at night. I give the view 5 stars but "night life" 2 stars.

Nice park for a beautiful summer day. Benches are limited so be prepared to sit in the grass. Views of the whole city from the top of Federal Hill, especially the Marina.

This park was a tough walk for anyone with back problems. You can get great pictures of the harbor, the park was clean, and has a nice walking path.

I appreciate that I met a local lady and she told me to go to the Federal Hill Park where is the best point to see the whole harbor. We went around 6:30, the sunset was going to happen and the view is breathtaking. We stayed there around an hour and enjoyed it.

Great views of the harbor and downtown Baltimore. Although, not too much difficulty for me, it is an actual hill, and while there are steps on the west side, I found later, accessing it may be difficult for those who are disabled or have some type of injury.

The park is high above the inner harbor and gives spectacular views. If you use the stairway from the harbor it is above 75 steps and not for those with medical issues.
