Any park with a view of the city is worth a visit! So we drove up to Federal Hill Park and parked and walked around the park and found a bench to sit and relax and look at the Baltimore skyline and harbor and beyond. It's a great place for families or couples enjoying the views of the buildings and the tall ships, checking out some history, working out (even saw some running up and down the steps). Or if you need some alone time to just chill or read, all is good here. And from above, check out the American Visionary Art Museum building that is covered in glass mosaic tiles...what a wonder!

If you want to see the city from above including the waterfront, this is the place to be. You can get stunning views...my favorite was the Domino Sugar sign...I had seen it from the Pier 5 Hotel at night with the red neon so I was surprised to see if so close during the day. And of course, you can see/discover the American Visionary Art Museum from up here too!

Walked the harbor view walk and came across Federal Hill Park. Climb the stairs to the top for the best views of Baltimore city and the harbor. Come in the summer for different festivals or movies in the park. Playground for the kids is a plus

After walking around Inner Harbor all morning, we needed the view, the break, the shade, and space for our boys to run around. Federal Hill delivered on all points. Glad we stopped to enjoy the view and the breeze!

My son and I visited Federal Hill Park before catching the ferry to Fell’s Point. From Battery Ave., take the stairs (100 Total) to the top. There you will find numerous benches where you can relax and take in the beautiful view of the inner harbor. Please be aware of the fact that there are no restroom facilities on the hill.

Such a simple walk down the Inner Harbor to get to. It was such a delight to have such a gorgeous view of Baltimore. I highly recommend taking the time. You can spend as much time on the hill as you'd like. My friend and I ended up sitting on one of the benches for a while to just admire the skyline. The park also provided a nice bit of shade which was appreciated. Overall, a great park with an unforgettable view of the city.

We were visiting friends in Glen Burnie and decided upon a drive into Baltimore...........oh what a wonderful experience. We drove to the base of Federal Hill Park and went up the stairs to find the most marvelous views. If you are ever near Baltimore go to this park and enjoy the quiet serenity and the magnificant views...........amazing.

Nice views of the city. A couple of statues and some informational signs — but mainly a place to get great pics of the city & the harbor.
