148 S. Linwood Ave
We had the best time visited my brother in Canton area of Baltimore City and exploring Patterson Park. Here’s how we spent the day!
☀️ Got breakfast from one of my most favorite places ever – Cafe Dear Leon. Seriously – they make amazing pastries and treats and they are some of the BEST foods I’ve ever had (and my dad is a chef, so I’ve had a lot of good food 😂) This is a small bakery so one of us went in to order while the rest of us stayed outside with the kids. We ate at the picnic tables in O’Donnell square.
☀️ Patterson Park Playground #1 – (near Linwood Ave and the pool – address listed above is for this playground!) – this has 2 play structures for different ages and several swings. Plenty of shade!
☀️ Patterson Park Pagoda – long walk uphill but worth it! Beautiful building and views of the city! “Cicada Parade” art displayed on the trees (thankfully, we didn’t see any real cicadas!)
☀️ Patterson Park Playground #2 (near Eastern Ave.) – This larger “castle” playground has a Baltimore theme – complete with a Bromo Selzer tower, rowhouse facades and tons of other really cool elements. This playground is fully fenced in and has a separate toddler area – no swings at this one!
☀️ Last stop – Bmore Licks – Directly across the street from the castle playground! They offer delicious traditional ice cream and soft serve in just about any flavor you can imagine. I loved that you could order from an outside window instead of having to go inside. 📍2437 Eastern Ave Baltimore
We had the best day in Baltimore (despite getting caught in a surprise downpour on our walk back to the car) and can’t wait to go back!
