Color On The Creek is an all volunteer inspired and managed water garden located in the Carroll Creek Linear Park which runs through the heart of downtown Frederick Maryland. Created in 2012, the garden transformed an algae plagued creek into a place of real beauty. The water garden blooms from April through October and is open and free to the public. Stop by; you won’t be disappointed! Read more about us, get involved or donate.
Walking along the creek you can’t help but hear passersby admire the color and serenity of the setting.
