Fred's Facts

Researchers have recently discovered that children with ADD can concentrate on schoolwork and similar tasks better than usual after taking part in activities in green settings, such as walking through or playing in a park.


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

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!
