Frederick government and civic boosters have expended considerable effort and dollars to convert an unsightly creek subject to periodic flooding of the downtown area into a visually pleasing area surrounded by cafes, shops, and [even] a museum. Frederick citizens love it and gather for periodic concerts, "walk-abouts", and refreshments. Dog walking is permitted - even encouraged - and a weekend... More

It's a beautiful place to visit in downtown Frederick during a festival or event but it can get a little questionable early or late evening.

Went this past Sunday to see the flowers in the creek. Walked from Market Street past the Delaplaine to the fence (construction in progress). Very pretty. Also saw some ducks and fish.

Every Thursday evening (5-8 PM) during the summer this is a great place to chat with neighbors and friends, have a few drinks, and enjoy the many bands ($5 cover). We always invite a few of our out-of-town acquaintances and the say they really enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

We lived here when they were building this creek side area but moved before its completion. We came back to visit and I am thoroughly impressed with the area! It is so beautiful! Centrally located, beautifully landscaped. Kudos to Frederick, MD!

This engineering marvel is an urban pedestrian park through down Frederick. It's a visual masterpiece, full of art, landscape, and pizzazz at every turn of the head. It's not just the waterway that's magnificent, it's the lily pads, brick work, beautifully designed pedestrian bridges, art, wide pedestrian walkways, street furniture, and thriving commercial, office, restaurant, and residential areas on both...

This is the centerpiece of Frederick's downtown revitalization. And rightly so. It is a beautiful park to take a stroll or people watch as you dine along its newly built restaurants and cafes. Bridges, paths and calming water features add to a aptly-chosen landscaping plants.

Carroll Creek Park has been in a big remodel. Most of the main phase is now complete and beautiful. The creek walkways are European in that they meander with the creek connecting park space with downtown neighborhoods and area retail. You can take a stroller or wheelchair most anywhere and then stop off for coffee or a beer or wine... More
