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.

We got married in Frederick and our photographer took us out here for pictures. They turned out beautifully. Definitely a nice local spot for some photos.

Right in the heart of the city is surrounded by some beautiful historic homes. This large Park is a great expanse of lawn. Ball fields. Playground, Lake and even a Bandshell. It's clean well-kept and there are a lot of parking spots on the main streets around it

A city park that offers more than just a playground for the kiddies. The day that we were in town it was rainy and cold all day. But somehow that seemed to make this oasis from the hubbub of downtown even more quaint. I can easily see spending some down time here, or even bringing a light picnic lunch. An... More

Playgrounds, bike paths, lots of green space, a lake, a creek, fishing for kids and the blind, dog park, public pool, covered bridge, a bell tower, rec center, band shell, and always full of people. What more could you want?!
