Federal Hill park stands behind the Inner Harbor and offers great views, You can also see out into the waters in east Baltimore, and for football fans, it offers one of the best views of M&T Bank Stadium. There is a playground at the top for kids to play, a side walk for jogging or walking the dog. And it... More

The view of the city skyline from here is incredible. Especially at night. I actually got engaged here.

Although I have been to the Inner Harbor a dozen times, this was the first time I made the trek up Federal Hill. As I was personally disappointed because my childhood idea was that a military fortress remained at the top of the hill, it was still a worthwhile climb. The park itself is clean and tidy, including a jungle... More

This is a nice park/playground to take the grandkids/children. However, I am disappointed at the lack of toilet facilities in the Baltimore parks. (So much so that I wrote the Baltimore Sun.) It's very difficult for the little ones because there are no toilet facilities nearby.

Must do in Baltimore at night, the view for the city on the water is amazing. Only a 15 minute stop to visit, walk up the stairs, enjoy the view/take a few pictures. It is walking distance from the inner harbor, so we spent a few hours there. If you travel in December you can explore the Christmas Village ..... More

Perfect place for a jog, a view or just reading a book. Weather was upper 50s and overcast and just a perfect day to walk around and read the historic signs of what went on a Federal Hill. Very quiet and scenic ...good to go and relax

This park atop a hill right next to the harbor offers spectacular views of Baltimore. They have a playground for the young and benches overlooking the city for those with more of a leisurely desire. There are several steps from the three sides, although one side has row houses and streets almost all the way to the top. I visited... More

Our kids spent the weekend playing all over the park. What a treasure it is. Close to the Harbor and really good restaurants.
