Founded in 1827, Patterson Park ranks as one of the oldest parks in the country. It grew from 9 acres at its start to 155 acres by 1909. Patterson Park Boat Lake also dates to the 19th century and became popular for ice skating among residents after it was built; it was later enlarged. The lake was created after extensive earthmoving was performed to remove military emplacements.
