A Fresh Take on Quiet Waters Park
By Riley Hoaglin
Quiet Waters Park is a well-known stop for most Annapolitans; with its breathtaking views and scenic trails, it is one park you do not want to miss. The park offers a wide variety of activities from art galleries, to pavilions, to a dog beach, and even a premier indoor facility — the Blue Heron Room — that can host your next event. In the winter months they open a centrally-located ice-skating rink (pictured below). The benefits of the park do not end there; the location of Quiet Waters Park is perfect! Just ten minutes to downtown, with a playground, walking trails, and scenic views of the South River, the park is a perfect destination for your next weekend exploration.
The park is open seven days a week from 7:00 AM to dusk. There is an entrance fee of $6.00 a day; however, if you plan on going to the park frequently, you can purchase an annual pass. Quiet Waters is more than just a park, it is a place where family and friends can meet to enjoy the outdoors and take in some fresh air.
