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

Fantastic layout and a lovely stroll with adornments by the nearby art school really make this a delight. Several food choices along the way,but watching the linear creek as it blooms is awesome. Library has a nice patio for relaxing and taking In the view. Can be some rather skanky people at times along the way, but I guess that... More

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
