Fun little waterfront park with 6+ miles of walking trails and paved interior roads suitable for biking and running. We were there when only the forsythia was out, but it must be a riot of colors when the flowers pop seasonally.

This is a really nice park. There is an entrance fee, but it is very large, with many great places for picnics, walking, cycling, and gardens.

$5 I believe. But you can also park in the shopping center lot across the street from the entrance and walk in for free! Eat at Grumps or Annapolis Smoke House since you’re parked in that lot!
