Reviewed August 13, 2014

Parking can be a challenge around the hill but the view is spectacular. Great spot for photos of the harbor.

“vista view!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This park affords one a fantastic view of Baltimore's inner harbor and the city beyond. It is well worth the stair climb to reach the top sidewalk. Bring a lite snake, sit and enjoy the view!

“Great for photography”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Just the fact the city allows this park area for people and didn't sell this area for condo development should be commended. Awesome view of the city. Great for photography. I arrived pre-dawn on Memorial Day to take sunrise photos (even though the sun rose from behind) and couldn't have been more pleased with the results!

The angles of the city for photographers is great (except for the big huge light right in the middle of the volleyball field - which would only be noticed as an obstacle by photographers). Other than that plenty of awesome locations to shoot from, including the top of the hill, as well as walking down to the harbor.

Looks like great place for family activities and just in general Baltimore should be proud of this park/riverfront area. I was very impressed and left with a positive attitude about the city.

“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!
