Nestled between the South River and Harness Creek, Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis offers a wide variety of family activities. Visitors can walk, jog, or bike on over 6 miles of scenic paved trails, play at the large multi-level children’s playground, enjoy the South River promenade and scenic overlook, or picnic among 336 acres of beautiful park land. Boat rental and ice-skating are available seasonally, and the park’s Visitor Center includes formal gardens, art galleries, and a café. Here is our day in pictures, a lovely spring day.

Laura enjoys a climb on the wooded path.

We arrive on the South River overlook by the Gazebo

The "boys" took another spin around the trails, Laura and I had a look a the gardens.

We thought the gardens were lovely!

I could not resist my daughter in this lovely pose.

A bridge beckoned us to cross and investigate.

Laura ran to see what was on the other side!

Quiet Waters was a serene place with pleasant scenery...from woods, water, to lazy little ponds like this one.
