Reminds me of the beautiful Riverwalk Park in Greenville, SC, but on a much smaller scale. We enjoyed walking along the creek watching ducks and the goldfish among the arranged plants. We discovered that Frederick is a very dog friendly city, we will bring fido next time. Enjoyable visit.

This park runs along a contained creek, with several fountains, a colorful bridge, ducks, water plants, and brick sidewalks. It is lined with restaurants, many with outdoor seating, and tonight there was even a young girl playing classical violin music, reminiscent of European square. It is peaceful to wander along the water, especially after dinner. Parking is easy, as there... More

This is quite a contrast the historic area of Frederick but well worth a visit. There are fine examples of Tromp l'oeil around the city but take a stroll along the water and admire the lilies and the art work, it is truly exceptional. Of course the bridge is marvelous. There was some construction in the area and it looks... More

A very nice walk along a canal. Well designed for an enjoyable view of art, scenery, shops, fish, and the lotus were blooming (of course, this is seasonal).

This park has quickly become a family favorite. It has plenty of room to walk, benches to rest, and water features and plants to liven things up. There are architecturally interesting little bridges crossing the water at various points. One such bridge has the zodiac signs on the sides. My kids are fascinated by it. There are fish of all...

The Carroll creek linear park extends through town with Baker park at one end and the train station at the other. Plenty of dining choices creekside and a pleasant walk. The painted bridge is hand painted artwork making the bridge look like stone work. Look closely and see figures in the stones.

We passed by this park on our way to The Wine kitchen where we had our brunch. There was an art festival in the park. So many things to see, they also had food tents . Beautiful bridge , picture perfect.

In my opinion: The tromp l'oeil paint on the walls and along the bridge supports was just great to look at. I especially like finding the duck on one of the bridge supports. The trail is tree-lined and the creek runs between the two sides of the trail. It is a peaceful and pretty trail to walk on. Note that... More

Carrol Creek park is a nice long trail that goes from downtown to Baker park. In the spring and summer, the trees that line the park are really beautiful, and the walk is very pleasant and easy. The trail ends in the dog park near Baker park, which is also fun to watch. You can also bike on the linear... More
