Patterson Park

Patterson Park

Patterson Park is a large public park in Baltimore with many recreational activities and a rich history.

Patterson Park, dubbed “The Best Backyard in Baltimore”, lives up to its nickname by offering 155 acres for outdoor activities. A boat lake, pagoda, ice-skating rink and historic buildings and monuments comprise the park’s amenities. The park also preserves a rich history, having served as a military encampment during both the War of 1812 and the Civil War.
