I've lived in Frederick over 10 years and enjoyed all Baker Park has to offer. I've never felt like it wasn't a safe place to come walking alone or to take my kids to its pool or many play areas. At times the duck pond has needed cleaning or the creek has flooded over the paths, but soon those things... More

This expansive park has many attractions: - a play areas for kids (swings, climbing bars); - a serene fountain; - a large clock tower (circa 1990s); - a river walk; - an amphitheater; - a fitness center (located under the National Guard building); - and a...

A great linear park in beautiful Frederick, Md. We walk the park often and will go all the way to Carol Creek which is beautiful this time of year with the water lilies blooming.

We've been walking around Baker Park for years. It's the perfect place to create many different walking routes. We see many others out walking their dogs, riding bikes, playing sports, and relaxing under the trees. They've also got tennis courts, a swimming pool, carroll creek, ducks, geese, herons, a ball diamond, playgrounds, picnic areas, unique bridges, and a concert band... More

Baker Park is a great place to explore. The pathways are clean, plenty of picture moments, and dog friendly. Take the kids, dogs, and family and explore. Check local listings for events, which are happening all the time. A short walk to downtown shops and restaurants.

We don't live far and have a child at Frederick High School and as such, we are no stranger to Baker Park. A great place to sit and watch the birds and take some great wildlife photos. They have drained the lake to make some much needed improvements that are to be completed in the fall of 2016. I cannot... More

Baker Park spans a pretty long stretch in Frederick. Has a lot of nice areas for kids and a nice concert shell. Great for long relaxing walks.

Baker Park is at one end of Frederick. We were walking along the water and came upon it. Very beautiful; lots of lawn space and trees to sit under and plantings. Quiet.

I'm visiting from Montana and I've been to Baker Park twice in the last week. Once for a leisurely stroll and one for a run. Both times I spent much more time than I'd intended. It is beautiful and there are so many little treasures along the paths. Families playing, friends jogging, people reading, napping, laughing... It's truly a place... More

This park is so adorable. I came here for a Nelson Mandela show at the Baker Park Bandshell (amphitheater) around dusk and there were people from all walks of life enjoying themselves with soccer, at the playground, or just hanging out with friends. Most of all it felt safe at the park.
