The Carroll Creek Linear Park is indeed a lovely place to walk. Just don't look up -- if you do, you'll see the dilapidated sign that used to be beautiful but has had its day. Won't someone do something about this sign? This beautiful downtown park deserves better. Donna S.

Whether just in town for shopping, going to dinner or lunch or for an event. Take the time for a little stroll, especially in the spring and summer. It simply relaxing! Sit on the library balcony or one of the creek side venues, sip a drink or have something to eat and people watch, what better way to while away... More

This is one of my favorite places in Frederick. It is so picturesque and beautifully landscaped. There are a lot of nice restaurants and shops adjacent to the park so food, ice cream, and adult beverages are right there. Most of the eating establishments have outdoor seating for the warmer seasons. A lovely place to take a walk with your... More

I recently made my first visit to this park in the wintry month of December. This isn't ideal as the creek was frozen and there were no scheduled events. There certainly wasn't anything going on at the far east end near the mural bridge or around the Arts Center. The amphitheater looked like a nice place for some outdoor entertainment,... More

This is a beautiful area to walk along the canals. The best time is on a summer or early fall evening. The area is very quiet. Part of the canal is lined with shops and apartments. The bridges crossing the canal look very cool. One looks like you are on a boat. There are also benches along the way for... More

The park is gorgeous. We were there in the evening. There was a bit of a smell from the water, but that is to be expected from time to time. Water plants were beautiful. There were friendly ducks wandering around. The art and architecture are outstanding. Lovely place to take family pictures.

This area is really first rate. Neat things to look at. Great place for a walk. Only downside is the water in the creek is murky. Don't go for the water, go for the rest.

We visited the last day of July walking between the Delaplaine Art Center and The Wine Kitchen. So many different varieties and colors of water lilies kept us looking and taking photos. Frederick is lucky to have this set of favorite activities in one spot with convenient parking. We travel to Frederick at least once a month for an art... More

Very nice area. Appeared to be safe with couples walking along the creek way. Definitely a must. However, we always like seeing a foot patrol officer walking the beat. Not sure why that style of policing went away?
