Since the last time I was there they've added a boat dock and changed the south end landscaping. It's been a great change and went from a nice park to one of the best.

Fort Smallwood is a small but nice family park. It has a great playground for kids with great water views. There are picnic tables here and there (not tons of them) and a few gazebos. But you can fish off the banks and a pier!...More

The park is not as large as Downs Park but they have swimming and a large pier for fishing and crabing. They also have an area where you can put your boat into the water.

This park is where the Patapsco River joins the Bay, and you can view freighters making their way into Baltimore Harbor, as well as recreational boats. Typically it is breezy there, and there are lovely waves. There is a small beach area at which now...More
