“A proper place to hang out!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Put this area with the memorials and the businesses around it, and the park itself would become a business!

“A Look Back at History”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This gives one a good taste of what Baltimore must have been like when it was ONLY a port city. Even though the Inner Harbor with all its restaurants are now there, Federal Hill still shows one why that port was so important all through our nation's history.

“Peaceful, beautiful Baltimore view”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Best view of inner harbor is at this point. This park maintains it's peacefulness. Parking can be a challenge but its worth the trouble.

“Beautiful Park overlooking the Inner Harbor area”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a park on a hill which over looks the Inner Harbor area. You have to walk up steps to get there. This use to be a fort but it is converted into a park. There are swings for the children and benches to seat on. This park is off the harbor area and provides a great view of the harbor area.

“Excellent vantange point to see the city skyline”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

I was at Federal Hill on a rainy day. Despite the rain, the view of the city skyline was breathtaking. I think Federal Hill offers the best view of the city. There were also a few signs providing some historical background on the hill. It is a short walk from the Inner Harbor, and a must see when visiting Baltimore.
