“great view of inner harbor”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

lovely 180 degree views of Baltimore inner harbor and out to Domino sugar plant, close walk from the other harbor location, well worth the climb up the steps. be careful about parking in the neighborhood adjoining the park it's restricted residential parking and towing is inforced duing ball games.

“Peaceful retreat with a view”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is one of my favorite places to walk around in Baltimore. Weddings on the weekends... people relaxing or playing with kids or dogs... tourists snapping pictures of the AWESOME view of Baltimore's skyline. Personally, I just like to sit on a bench facing the inner harbor and take it all in.

“Good view but small”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The view from atop Federal Hill is nice, you can see the harbor area and over to Canton, etc. There is a nice fenced-in playground area for the kids where dogs are not allowed, so that's a nice feature if you have little ones. I used to live in this neighborhood and most of the dog owners are responsible (on leash) but you get the occasional visitor who thinks their dog is better behaved than they actually are, and that's a huge pet peeve of mine. We used to walk our dogs here (on leash) but had to stop because we were always confronted by some fuzzy friend whose owner was on the other side of the park. Definitely not a fun place to try to picnic. If you are down in the harbor area and want a good spurt of exercise, climb on up for the view, just don't plan on spending too much time there.

“Great views”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

You can't beat the view from this park. The equipment is a little run down, but the word is that it's getting a facelift in 2012. Can't wait!
