Not quite up to the level of the San Antoni, Tx river walk, but a pleasurable stroll just the same. Many restaurants to pick from along the way.

A super find in a great little town. The combination is a creek/river, pretty overpassed, nearby parks and rest areas. And the the unique mixture of craft vendors. A stop here on a nice Christmas visit just made the day😁

It's amazing what Frederick has done with this area. They took an ugly and degraded urban creek that was essentially a storm drain and turned into a lovely creek and linear park. There are bridges designed by world renowned sculptors, beautiful landscaping, art, water lilies,...More

Fishing is not allowed in Carroll Creek in the downtown area. However, Culler Lake is nearby and fishing is allowed there.

There is metered parking on the streets. There are two parking decks near the creek.
