History

In 1938 the lake was originally called Kidwiler. In 1940 the lake was renamed Culler Lake in honor of Mayor Lloyd Culler. The lake is man made and it serves as part of a stormwater management system that protects downtown Frederick Maryland from flooding. In 2016 the lake was dredged and 500 dump trucks of debris and sediment was removed. The city stocks the lake with fish and festivals are held there.
