Let’s Amplify Patterson Park!

It’s time to Amplify Patterson Park! The park has been so important to neighbors as a place to exercise, find peace, and socialize since it was established 80 years ago.

Friends of Patterson Park works to make it an even more welcoming place for all our East Austin neighbors by hosting community events like our annual easter egg hunt, national night out picnic and luminarias. We also plan park improvement projects, and have been proud to bring new playground equipment, benches, baskets and backboards, and more to neighborhood park.

Our 2023 Amplify Austin Day goal is to raise $7,000 in 2023 so that we can continue making improvements to our park and bringing our community together. We want Patterson Park to be where all our neighbors are welcome to play, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors.
