Fred's Facts

Frederick Law Olmsted believed parks would educate and civilize citizens, that they would provide physical and spiritual blessings to people from tenements and sweatships as well as those from expensive mansions. He believed all people would meet and mingle in parks, thus overcoming the barriers of class and wealth. He believed in the power of parks to elevate humankind.

Welcome New Adoption Partners!

June 21, 2011

This past week, Kentucky Mountain Bike Association (KYMBA) and Expeditors International made their commitment to Frederick Law Olmsted Parks official! Our two new adoption partners will send representative members a few times a year to help maintain the parks they love.

KYMBA has a long-standing history of volunteerism and enthusiasm for the trails of Cherokee Park. Find out more at kymba.org.

Expeditors International is an area business with an interest in preserving Iroquois Park for their employees and customers to continue to enjoy.

Olmsted Parks Conservancy would like to welcome and offer many sincere thanks to our new adoption partners!
