Forbes Names Patterson Park One Of America’s Best City Parks

In a new article in the travel section of Forbes, Paterson Park, in Baltimore, is named one of America’s best city parks.

According to the article, Patterson Park “is steeped in history; it was the site of Union encampments during the Civil War, and houses several unique, historic buildings. It’s also full of present-day pleasures–skating rinks, pavilions and playgrounds–that connect the surrounding neighbors to the space”.

Frederick Law Olmstead designed Patterson Park at the end of the 19th century.  It was the first athletic park in the United States.  Today it spans 155 acres and is frequented by not only by runners, bikers, basketball, soccer players and other sports enthusiasts, but it has also become a popular setting for families, community gardeners and bird watchers, among others.  In addition to being a free and open space to the public, Patterson Park hosts community, cultural, and artisitic events.  For more information about Patterson Park, CLICK HERE.
