Owner description: Former lookout during the Civil War and the War of 1812 is now a scenic park overlooking the Inner Harbor.
Reviewed July 1, 2013

From the harbor you can see a high grassy hill; it kinda looks like a step pyramid covered with grass. I love to walk after dinner, didn't know what the hill was, so, decided to scale it. I asked about the area first, as the Baltimore's Inner Harbor is surrounded by bad areas.
As it turns out Federal Hill is worth the walk. From the top is a stunning panoramic view of the Harbor, the city skyline and the sprawling city. There are benches to sit and enjoy the view. There are a few statues, a children's park and some plaques. The neighborhood that faces the park is row style, Federal brick houses. Very nice. At the bottom of the hill are beach volleyball courts.
There are supposed to be bars and restaurants in that neighborhood, but given Baltimore's crime problems I wanted to get back to my hotel before dark.
Still, it was worth the walk.

Wonderful view of Baltimore. If you are on foot at the waterfront, this is worth the walk. Or, you could take the water taxi, which has a stop just two blocks away.

This park was very relaxing! Well shaded, wide open park. It also has a great view of the city of Baltimore.
