Patterson Park is home to some great sights in Baltimore. With attractions like the Patterson Pagoda, this is a beautiful park and a must-see while in the city! Within the park there is architecture free to explore. For example, the Patterson Pagoda, built in 1890, is open to the public from noon to 6pm on Sundays. So go walk the beautiful spiral stars and appreciate what is considered to be a symbol of Baltimore. Not to mention, they also host family events there from time to time.
If it’s a little hotter out, then you can also check out Boat Lake. Go look a the wildlife living around the lake or stroll down the boards on the water. Grossed out by the waterfowl? Then check out the fountain instead! Designed by the great George Frederick, this historical fountain is a neat place to hang out with your friends and take in the scenery. Or just go for a swim in the public pool!
Normally, parks in Winter are horrible. But not here! With admission to the ice skating rink priced at only $4.00, it’s a steal to come skate on a nice December day. You can find the hours for the rink here. No matter what the season, day or time, there’s plenty to see at the great Patterson Park, so make sure to add it to your Baltimore trip itinerary!
