It's a park with a playground and some green. Don't go out of your way. However if you're going to the American Visionary Art Museum, which is next to it and is well worthwhile (see the kinetic art) the park makes a good place for a picnic.

Federal Hill park overlooks Baltimore's famed Inner Harbor. Not only do you find the very best views of the Inner Harbor and the city generally, if you have children, the park now has brand news swings and slides for them to play on. Our granddaughter loves the playground and has to go every time she talks her parents into coming... More

If you go on a beautiful sunny day, you will have great views. Climb the stairs and look out over the inner harbor. Take notice of the flag and the canons for their history. It's also a great place to exercise.

Offers a few historical signs and monuments, offers a great view of the inner harbor for free and a place to relax. Also has a playground for the kids. However it if approaching from the harbor side its a steep climb. You can walk around to the backside for an easier ascent.

Enjoyed an afternoon walk to the park. People watched and enjoyed the view. Great overview of the harbor. Very windy that day!

There is a great Discovery episode that can be found online explaining the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. Prepare for trip by refreshing your US History and British attack on Baltimore. THEN visit and you will be travel in time. If your not into you country, war, history, or patriotism then hit Hooters for some wings. Its a short... More

Federal Hill Park offers gorgeous views of Baltimore City & is a short drive (or meandering stroll) from the Inner Harbor. Located in South Baltimore, there are often events in this park during the summer months. It's a great spot for a picnic!

With a commanding view of everything that is both fascinating and tranquil. Great exercise climbing up its front face - also good for dozing on a warm day. Shady an sunny and always feels safe.

Originally built upon to raise trading ship company flags to announce the arrival of ships into Baltimore harbor, it was later occupied stealthily in the nighttime by Federal Troops at the beginning of the Civil War, with cannon trained on the existing City Hall dome, to prevent southern, sympathizing politicians from voting to secede from the Union since maryland is...
