Baker Park is 75 years old, and made possible by the donation of Joseph Baker, once Mayor of Frederick. The Joseph Dill Baker Memorial Carillon Bell Tower, named after him, was finished in 1942. A weekly carillon recital is played on the Joseph Dill Baker Carillon each Sunday at noon for half an hour.
Named after Lloyd C. Culler, a citizen of Frederick who was instrumental in founding Baker Park, the lake at Baker Park is a serene spot to walk and feed the ducks. Features include a bandshell, a lake, a public swimming pool, tennis courts, athletic fields, two playgrounds, Carroll Creek and the Armory which serves as a community center. The park is a venue for summer concerts, a children’s theater and many other outdoor events.
The Carroll Creek Water management system starts with this channel for Carroll Creek in Baker Park. It was built after the downtown area was flooded with 3 feet of water during hurricane Agnes in 1973
