Patterson Park in Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Welcome to Patterson Park, Baltimore's oldest city park, established in 1827 with a gift of land from William Patterson. This Baltimore landmark began as a "Public Walk" of 6 acres and has grown into a pastoral and recreational landscape. The 137 acres of Patterson Park are treasured for the unique historic features, broad lawns, grand trees and a variety of recreation facilities.
We encourage you to visit the park often, enjoying it year round. Take a walk around the boat lake watching nesting ducks in spring. Enjoy a picnic beneath a venerable shade tree or go for a cool swim in the heat of summer. Play or watch a game of soccer, football, tennis or basketball as the leaves fall. Sled down snowy hills or walk around the frozen lake in winter. Climb to the top of the Pagoda on a clear day.
Please respect and share this public landscape in courtesy. Obey park usage rules.
