Patterson Park Branch

Front of Patterson Park Branch

Located on the eastern side of Library Square, The Patterson Park Branch shares a four-block-long strip of greenspace formed by Linwood Avenue on the east, Fayette Street on the south and Pulaski Highway sloping on the north. Adorned with benches and lush trees, Library Square is a small section of nature in an otherwise very urban area. Neighborhood children and adults enjoy leisurely activities in the square and few local festivals are annualy held there.
