Such a simple walk down the Inner Harbor to get to. It was such a delight to have such a gorgeous view of Baltimore. I highly recommend taking the time. You can spend as much time on the hill as you'd like. My friend and I ended up sitting on one of the benches for a while to just admire... More

nice view of the city…a short walk from downtown. Fun place for kids and history buffs. Cannons are a nice touch and close to art museums.

Beautiful views of nearly the entire Inner Harbor. Scenic for the locals too because we saw 3 wedding parties and a Quinceanera party in the park for photos! We walked the perimeter and sat for over an hour admiring the views.

The Best View of Inner Harbor - Hands down. As a former local (lived around the corner) I would walk and sit int his beautiful park watching the flow of the City all the time. Nothing is better than this park. It's a must see for locals and visitors alike.

You can access the Park by walking, by the free Purple Route bus, or by walking from the Rusty Scupper stop of the Water Taxi. The park and surrounding residential area are pleasant, but not a lot to see after you've wandered the Federalist streets. The views of downtown Baltimore and the Inner Harbor are nice.

The beautiful viewing area in the park stands alone in my mind as the most relaxing place to spend a day out. It's fine landscaping and layout provides hours of fun for folks as well as their pets. Such great lookouts in all areas of the park provide many spots for breathtaking photos. Would definitely recommend this park to any... More

From the top of Federal Hill you can see Inner Harbor, Camden Yards and other sights within Baltimore. The inner square of the park is fenced off for the kids.

Federal Hill Park sits on the south side of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. It has a special place in my heart, since I was born only a few blocks away from it in the now-defunct South Baltimore General Hospital on Light St. It was on Federal Hill, that the citizens of Baltimore declared their approval for the U.S. Constitution. There is... More

I enjoy this little block of green - running down the hillside, walking around the top, looking over the harbor, and thinking how many different lives have experienced such hugely different perspectives from this hill
