This beautiful linear park is so lovely for a walk, a run, a read or a glass of wine. It works in all four seasons and is an outstanding feature of the City of Frederick.

Good place to take a little walk and enjoy an ice cream from the nearby ice cream shop. Further down the walk, just passed the bridge, on the opposite side looked a little dirty and unkept.
