This park overlooks the Baltimore skyline as well as the inner harbor. The views here are way better than anything else you will see in the city. There is also a bit of interesting history here, including the use of the cannons that still sit on the hill, as well as a spot where hangings use to occur just around... More

Great view of harbor from the top. Good aerobic workout walking up & around. Early morning: serious exercisers, later: dog walkers & couples.

If you love photography, this park is for you. With plenty of benches and places to sit, enjoy an amazing view of downtown and the Inner Harbor in all its glory. Do a picnic, just sit with family or a special friend, take your four-legged friend for a stroll or your young kids to the great playground atop the hill.... More

The view from the top of the hill really added to my memory of visiting Baltimore. The hill would be considered a steep climb for some if you take the stairs from the harbor side. The park was well cared for and green the day I was there. You could take many nice camera shots of the harbor and the... More

This park is a short walk from the Inner Harbor. You can see it from the Harbor. Basically it is just a hill with a small park but it does give you a beautiful view of the harbor. It is a relaxing area with benches. It does have some historical information on signs.

Federal Hill used to be a Union Army fort that's why it look like a big man-made hill on the harbor. In the Civil War union troops had cannons pointed on Baltimore to keep it in the union. After all, Maryland is south of the Mason Dixon line and was a slave state so folks in Baltimore were pretty sympathetic... More

If you're at the inner harbor going to Federal Hill Park for the view is worth the walk. It will take about 10 minutes to get to the park and up the hill, but the photos you can take will be worth the effort! Any time i'm near the park I go up and take photos. I even proposed to... More
