Don't Pave the Park!

The Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, in conjunction with the Baltimore City Health Department, have proposed to create both a loop road and build three new parking areas/lots along it that would create approximately 96 parking spaces in the Park. The two departments claim it is needed to expand services at the "Casino" building (aka the Latrobe House) and the Virginia Baker Recreation Center.

Creating this road with parking would reduce the amount of green space in the park, and increase vehicular traffic, thereby potentially reducing the safety of pedestrians in the park.

We believe that there should be no new road or parking spaces in the park and ask that the Department of Recreation and Parks and the Health Department withdraw this plan. In essence: PROTECT PATTERSON PARK -NO MORE CARS, NO MORE PARKING, NO MORE PAVING!

      No more cars in the park! It will not help with parking because our parking problems are at night, not during the day.

      There are already too many cars in Patterson Park. Adding parking and allowing more people to drive in the park will bring greater numbers of cars that ever intended.

      The roads would be too dangerous for children playing in the park with citizens driving through it. Once you let one segment drive through, every sports player will be driving through every day. BAD idea.
