Checkout the Carroll Creek Parkway with tons of local eateries, boutique shops, public library, National Museum of Civil War Medicine and water lilly filled creek! You won't be sorry you visited this super historic Main Street of Frederick, Maryland.

When I first moved to Frederick, this wasn't really a lark, just a concrete sidewalk with a creek running down the middle. It is now a beautiful park with benches to sit on to gaze upon the creek or watch people go by. It's used often for celebrations and festivals which are interesting and fun. During the summer there are... More

At the south end of Market Street, we enjoy red this pleasantly landscaped waterside walk. Bring some food for the giant carp who swim beside the bridge. Beware there is not much to find in the old town south of here.

This area is great for a stroll after doing some shopping. Either work off some of the food you enjoyed or work up an appetite as you take in this artistic stretch of the canal that offers something new and exciting every few feet.

This was a very attractive walkway and gathering spot for all ages and types along an historic creek in a city full of history. On a clear, warm, late summer Sunday morning it was just the place to be. Very enjoyable.

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
