This park is a 5-minute walk from the Scarborough Fair B & B. It towers over the Inner Harbor area and provides an outstanding view of Baltimore. There is a nice trail around the perimeter for couples, families and dog walkers.

Many photos of Baltimore have been taken from this vantage point overlooking the Inner Harbor. The neighborhood of Federal Hill is also decent for strolling around. There are a lot of shops, restaurants and bars nearby - Cross St and Light is basically the center. Federal Hill Park itself is a bit small but well maintained and usually pretty clean.... More

It's a nice view of the Harbor but that's about it. you can walk down the hill to cross street market for lunch. Figure a hour max. NOT in the winter and definitely NOT at night, but you do get a great view of downtown and the Harbor

Great view of baltimore city along with a lot of history of this hill. Parking can be difficult at times so beware of the signs. There are cannons, benches, and plaques to read to tell the story. Not a large park at all and it is dog friendly. Can be crowded at times for it is a popular attraction.

There are a lot of steps to get to the top but it is worth it. The view of the harbor from up there is absolutely amazing. When you get to the top, there is a small playground and lots of benches where you can sit and look out over the harbor. There are a few statues as well as... More

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
