import matplotlib.patches as mpatches
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt


fig, ax = plt.subplots()

Path = mpath.Path

codes, verts = zip(*path_data)

patch = mpatches.PathPatch(path, facecolor='r', alpha=0.5)
ax.add_patch(patch)

# plot control points and connecting lines
x, y = zip(*path.vertices)
line, = ax.plot(x, y, 'go-')

ax.grid()
ax.axis('equal')
plt.show()
