This beautiful linear park is so lovely for a walk, a run, a read or a glass of wine. It works in all four seasons and is an outstanding feature of the City of Frederick.

Time seems to stand still as you stroll along Carroll Creek. The tromp d'oeil and artwork on the Community Bridge is definitely the icing on the cake!

As part of the tour we walk thru this area and had a wine tasting. We visited the day of the Wine Festival. The music was fantastic and park was very beautiful.

Very attractively designed and implemented, and well used by local residents. There are several festivals and events held in the park during the summer, and on any pleasant evening there are numerous people enjoying the park -- families, groups of teen agers, couples, and singles.

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