And finally, the view of... More

Nice park to picnic. View was awesome. The steps up to the park was steep. On the opposite side of the park there are no stairs to exit - somewhat odd. Most people just walked down the grass hill to exit.

This is a very beautiful area with greeneries in and water around. Many people use this park for relaxing, jogging, pet walking or socialization for people of all ages. I together with one of my colleagues went there one afternoon crossing the harbor from the other side and found the place very lively. Very clean and well maintained too.

Don't get me wrong...this is a nice park. It does give you some history of the events that took place there but it's more of a city park that just happens to have history attached to it. We were up there when it was sooooooo windy...

A friend and I spent the day in Baltimore, and we ended up walking to the top of Federal Hill after lunch and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, just enjoying the sights. Federal Hill overlooks the Inner Harbor of Baltimore. It gets its name from the parade that ended here in 1789 to celebrate the federal constitution. The hill has witnessed... More

a must drive around and look at various buildings in addition to a spot full of history. It is a buzy place but it is worth going there.

Amazing views over the harbour from the top of the hill. Nothing really at the top other than a small kids playground.

An all time favorite place to take visitors no matter what time of year. You can see harbor down past Canton. It's great when the tall ships come in when you know their schedules. Great breezes. Sit on a bench for a few minutes and just take it all in. Be smart where you park or you will walk your... More

A quick walk from the inner harbour area, with beautiful views looking back over the harbour & city. A popular spot for tourists, dog walkers & joggers.
