Patterson Park has two very accessible playgrounds that provide hours of fun for children of all ages (and parents too!).

Patterson Park Playground #1Playground #1
Located inside the park near Linwood Avenue, this playground was completely renovated in 2000. It has swings, slides, and climbing apparatus for the kids, as well as shaded benches for the adults. If that isn’t enough there is also a water fountain for all to enjoy. Conveniently located near the pool, ice rink, and tennis courts, be sure to pop in for a little playtime on your next visit to Patterson Park.

Patterson Park Playground #2Playground #2
Located inside the park near Eastern Avenue between Milton and Montford Avenues, this playground, constructed in 2005, pays homage to the Baltimore’s distinct architecture and landmarks – complete with rowhouse facades, a Bromo-Seltzer clock tower and a gazebo reminiscent of the Music Pavilion, one of Patterson Park’s lost landmarks. This playground is “Bawlmer”, hon.

The space is completely fenced in and includes separate play spaces for toddlers and older children plus an open area for running or tossing a ball. The slides and climbing equipment connect into the wall, making them handicap accessible. The many large trees provide shade for a picnic or some cooling down after monkey-ing around on the jungle gym.
