Dedicated to the Park and it's Future
Baker Park is a 58 acre linear park running through the heart of downtown Frederick. Founded 75 years ago through the generosity of one of Frederick’s leading citizens, it is one of the city’s greatest assets with playgrounds, walking paths, ball parks, a concert pavilion, lake and gardens.
The Friends of Baker Park, Inc. know that Baker Park requires constant care and attention and believe the park can be an even greater asset to our City and lifestyle. Members of Friends of Baker Park, Inc. are dedicated to the park and its future. The park was founded through a citizen’s care and generosity, and we believe it can be further enhanced by the care and attention of today’s citizens.
