“A total delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This gem in the heart of Frederick, MD is something which must be seen and not read about. I am unable to express how wonderful this mural is -- all I can say is that if you don't take the time to visit, walk along the entire bridge and both sides, more than once (otherwise you'll miss things, believe me), you have missed one of the most ingenious and delightful art forms you will ever see. Go!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

What a lovely way to spend an evening, walking along the water, admiring the water plants and checking out the mural. There is a lot to see in the mural, and it is such a beautiful area of Frederick.

“Extreme talent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This mural is so real looking you have to touch it to see if it is. The murals he has done around town are the same. This is a beautiful setting for his mural.

“Must see if you are in Frederick.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

A nice little walk next to Carroll Creek. We visit the Bridge mural several times per year. Also visit the local owned shops. There is an antique row next to the creek.. Plan to spend several hours downtown. Something for everyone. Also visit the Delaplaine arts center

“Great place to walk around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

I don't think this is historic because it is so very new. But it is great to see. A great idea first championed years ago by ex-Mayor Young demonstrates that local governments can execute great urban plans that open up completely new environments for people of all ages.
The mural is great to see, but that's almost an aside after you've seen it a dozen times. Lots of people hang out on warm summer evenings for wandering around and talking to others.
They could get some better food places here, but what we have is at least a start.

Go ahead and spend some time downtown! Eat dinner at one of the better restaurants (Acacia, Brewers Alley, Firestones) or grab a casual meal at Wags or Griffs. Then wander.
