We were looking for a place to take a stroller and walk around. Great trails, fun baby swing for our 8 month old grandson at the playground. Ice skating was fun to watch and I enjoyed the art show going on at the visitor's center.

Having grown up on the incomparable Harness Creek in Annapolis, I know QWP as beautiful and wild woods from well before it was a park. When I heard that it was to be turned into a city park, I quietly despaired. I could not have...More

If you have never been, it is time to go there. Art, ice skating, kayaking, hiking, walking and personal time with your pets. What else could you ask for??? The price is right.

We regularly walk QWP in all seasons. Park across the street for free, grab coffee from Grumps and go. There's a small and large dog run area, a great Arts center, ice skating when it's cold and lots of pavilions for party rentals.

Can you launch your own kayak from Quiet Waters park? Also, is there a swimming beach?

Response from Kim B | Reviewed this property |
You can definitely launch your kayak and I believe even rent them but no place to swim.
Are dogs allowed in all parts of the park (leashed)? Or only in the dog park/beach sections?

All parts can have dogs on a leash. There are two dog parks that a leash is not needed.
