Picnics, Parks & Gardens in Baltimore



Popular Places

  • Old Town
  • Although Baltimore is a typically urban American city, it has its fair share of beautiful and scenic parks, gardens, and picnic areas. The city currently manages more than 200 parks throughout the county. Whether nestled in the dead center of a neighborhood bordered by homes or located on the fringes of the city, these picnic, park and garden areas offer the traveler both relaxation and a little bit of history.

    Federal Hill Park, though not the largest of parks in Charmed City, tops our list simply for its proximity to harbor hotels and attractions. At the peak of the hill, you have a panoramic view of the city. On a clear day you can see past Charmed City's beloved M&T stadium and all around the harbor and due east. There are several benches for relaxing as well as a playground for kids. Monuments and statues sprinkle the park, offering the significance of the location to past battles in the city.
    If you're looking for a bit more tranquility in a more woodland setting, Cylburn Arboretum has just what the therapist ordered. Formal gardens reveal some of the natural beauty of Baltimore that often gets lost in the hustle and bustle of street lights.
