“Lots of fun activities”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is a great park to visit. The park has shaded trails for walking, jogging, or biking that have scenic views. They offer several activities through pedal or paddle including bike rental, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, rowboats, and paddle boats. On the night we went they had a free concert from the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. There's also stuff for your dog, including a dog park where your dog can run off leash. There's also a dog beach but it seems to have been closed for a long time.

“Tuesday closed!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

It's closed on Tuesday so we couldn't enter the park. Be careful you are planning to go there. We planned the visit in the wrong day.

“Pack a Lunch”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Great park for walking and bird watching. There are plenty of picnic areas so
pack a lunch. A little oasis in the middle of the city. The boat and bike rentals are by the hour and would be a bit expensive for a family. There is also a very cute dog park, so bring your pet.

“Nice park, but don't expect views at every turn”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I visited Quiet Waters Park primarily for their running path - a four-mile loop around the park. It's a nice path through the woods, though I was a little disappointed that it is pretty much devoid of water views. One of the reviewers below wrote that you can run along the water, but that's really only for about 200 meters by the South River Overlook. That said, in my opinion, the South Overlook is the prettiest area of the park and a very nice place to relax by the water after a run. Apart from running, the park has a lot to offer - areas for biking, boating, a dog park, and just sitting by the water.
