A walk along Carrol Creek is a delightful stroll. The trompe l'oeil painted bridge is a work of art and the area refreshing and relaxing. Take time to enjoy the plants and fish as well as the lighted boats during winter.

Carroll Creek is beautiful. It's a great place for a leisurely stroll, to watch bands and listen to music, meet up with friends, picnic, and enjoy the weather. Many restaurants nearby, as is the library and shopping.

Pick a nice day to stroll the creek and take in the atmosphere of people, places and things. Several good restaurants along creek and nearby. Walk thru downtown Frederick and visit the quaint historic city.

I often walk here on nice days. This is really a flood control project made beautiful. Be sure to check out the Community Bridge under Carroll Street. The artwork is fantastic!

It isn't San Antonio but it is a small version in a small charming town full of restaurants and interesting shops.

A walk along the Carrol Creek through Frederick is nice but the creek has been highly tamed by concrete, brick and stone. There's plenty of room for walking, running or biking along the water through town. Its nice if a bit antiseptic; not exactly natural.
