The Olmsteds & Patterson Park

Program at the Canton Library recommended by our member, Jackie Gilbert.

1030 S. Ellwood Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21224

The Olmsteds and Our Patterson Park

Come explore how Patterson Park became the "Best Backyard in Baltimore." In 1827, in an effort to re-create the public walks that he had seen in Europe, William Patterson offered the mayor of Baltimore six acres of land on the hill. In 1850, the city purchased another 29 acres from Patterson’s heirs and on the evening of July 13, 1853, 20,000 citizens witnessed the park’s formal introduction as a public space.  Learn how the Olmsted brothers and Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks shaped this space as the City moved into the 20th and 21st centuries.

Presented by Ed Orser, PhD and Myra Brosuis.
