A place to exercise your dog, but also a place to hear great live music in an out door bandshell, dance and celebrate the 4th of July in Grand Style. I've never used the modern park equipment, but it's always full of playing children and parents. Rarely is there a day when there aren't people playing on the tennis court.... More

Beautiful open space, ducks, geese - lovely just to walk around. Adjacent to downtown Frederick and near the Carrol Creek waterway. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping too.

very pretty park, especially with the recent renovations to the lake. They added a boardwalk and new, nicer fountains as well as plants and things.

Come for the 4th of July and watch the fireworks, visit during the summer concert series or take time to walk the creek, play tennis, swim in the pool or have a picnic.

Within a walkable, wheelchair accessible mile there's a playground, band shell, pool, tennis courts, lake and baseball fields. The historic bells help keep time reminders as well as are played at times by a special artist

When between activities in Frederick, we stopped in at Baker Park to chill out. Found a nice bench by the creek,, watched the ducks and passersby, all very nice. Good place to take a break (weather permitting, of course). And there are port-a-johns (by the tennis court, not far from the bell tower)

This park is has so many activities and things to do. It is so large that it makes a perfect walking area. The soccer fields and tennis courts are all maintained. The playground equipment is also top notch. I have been there for the March of Dimes walk which was lovely. The only complaint is that there are no restroom... More

We like to take our visiting grandchildren to Baker Park. There are covered individual picnic tables; on busy days you would need to get there early to get one though. The playground is great for younger kids & plenty of open grassy areas to play. The stream goes through the park so we always take bread along to feed the... More

It is a wonderful park that is being upgraded and will soon have a lake added. It's in a great part of town in the historical district and has paths to walk on and plenty of places for kids to play as well as a pool. It also has the big clock and amphitheater so you can listen to music... More
