Fred's Facts

Frederick Law Olmsted’s “pastoral” landscapes exhibit a sense of extended space and gracefully modulated ground with smooth, close-cropped turf. This style he found to be a special antidote to the ill effects of urban life.

Beer Run was a success!

The Great American Beer Run was a success!
Joining forces with the finest local craft breweries the 3-mile fun run with craft beer tasting stations along the race route, was quite the festive event. From Wonder Woman and her Super Man to the Celtic Basketball team (haha), everyone exercised well as they enjoyed their run through the historic Cherokee Park. The brewhalla included fun contests, live music, and great food. There was even a free bike valet provided by Bicycling for Louisville and sponsored by KAIRE

We thank Louisville Beer Run for choosing Olmsted Parks Conservancy as their charity.
