“The other Federal Hill Park”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

RIverside Park (formally known as Leone Riverside Park) doesn't have the skyline view of the city you get in Federal Hill Park. But it also doesn't have the tourists and bustle that you get in that other park. Riverside Avenue in Federal Hill connects the two parks by just a short 15-minute walk. The walking paths in Riverside Park are recently restored with newly poured concrete, and the landscaping is beautiful. It is a little oasis on the South Baltimore peninsula, a good place for a picnic on a park bench or a leasurely stroll among the trees and flower beds. Get some take-out from one of the many restaurants on nearby Fort Avenue (Baba's Kitchen, Captain Larry's, Barflys's, Koba Cafe, Delia Foley's, Bluegrass Tavern) or a sandwich from the deli at Lucky's Superette. There are free concerts in the summertime and often soccer, football, or baseball games happening on the athletic fields at the back of the park. This is a true neighborhood gem and a slice of authentic South Baltimore life, where you're likely to chat with some of the locals.

The Yuppies allow their dogs to do their business and don't clean it up. Stay on the paths and you may be ok.
