I love everything about Baker Park. I spend lots of time here all year round. Walking, watching the ducks in the summer and sitting on a quiet bench just to read a book. It is very good for exercise. Youll see runners, joggers, dog walkers, and moms with strollers. Fire works and the 4th of July celebration, and the decorated... More

Spacious, scenic, peaceful - perfect for jogging or Tennis after work, lounging on a Sunday, even biking. It can get a bit soggy after some rain, could work on the drainage system but nice open grass for frisbee, football, whatever you like. The bell tower is the crown jewel of the park and makes for great sunset pictures. The creek... More

This has been and is a great park for taking my family, pets, relatives, out of town guests to visit in order to play on the playground equipment or to play tennis, listen to music, watch 4th of July fireworks. Carroll Creek that passes through Baker Park is fun to observe with all of it's waterfowl and resident fish.

What a great place to walk, sit and talk, have a picnic, play with children, and listen to the bells. It would be wonderful to live close by.

We didn't stay long or experience much here but my auntie raves about this park & the music & festivities they have going on too. She lives in Frederick with her family & love this park too. Check it... More

We visited Baker Park with our 5 and 3 year old boys during a family trip to Frederick. We enjoyed the playground equipment, duck filled river, open areas for sports, and single-table picnic pavilions.

This is an awesome Park, There is a playground for the kids. In the summer there is a band or some type of performance at least once a week. Plenty of walking paths yet there are lots of shade trees if you want to picnic. (no grills) The lake is nice for the kids to put in their play boats.... More

This large park has something for everyone. There are shady areas and large, grassy areas. There is a pretty fountain and a bell tower near a bandshell where free performances are held. The kids' playground is large and well-kept, and has many benches where you can sit to watch your children enjoy the activities. A great place for an afternoon... More
