About this Sacred Place

Patterson Park is known to its urban neighborhoods as “the best back yard in Baltimore.” Surrounded on all sides by densely populated urban neighborhoods, this 137-acre park has been valued and loved by the southeast Baltimore community for generations. Nature Sacred played a major part in the restoration of the 1864 Marble Fountain located at the park’s original entrance, and in the establishment of a new public space. The historic fountain serves as a community gathering place and focal point within the park, offering pause and respite through one of the many benches that sit back from and surround the sky-reaching fountain.
