Fred's Facts

Although captivated throughout his career by large, rural parks, during his later years Frederick Law Olmsted became intrigued by the social possibilities created by small urban spaces. Small neighborhood parks, playgrounds and squares might provide opportunities for respite from the congestion and noise of urban life.

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!
