The Blue Door takes delight in being a close three-block walk to one of Baltimore's largest parks, Patterson Park. We are also a corporate "Friend of Patterson Park". Our guests frequent the park for early morning walks or runs. On Sunday afternoons they ascend the steps of the observation pagoda for some fantastic views, including Fort McHenry with its giant flag hoisted across the harbor. Please check out the Park Website for scheduled events, history and other details.
A recent balloon flight over the Park yielded some fantastic sights of the park, neighborhood, harbor and downtown (click on each image to zoom in on additional detail). The flight of "Picavet" balloon was inspired by the cool stuff going on at the Public Labs, you can check out the Public Labs project at http://publiclab.org/wiki/balloon-mapping. For the entire slide set of Picavet's journey you can go to http://imgur.com/a/v4F0x
