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.

Public Information Session-Iroquois

July 01, 2014

It’s time to meet and discuss the Iroquois Park Northern Overlook Restoration Project… and it’s going to be a walk in the park… literally!

On Monday, July 15 at 7 p.m., Metro Parks and Olmsted Parks Conservancy invite the public to a gather at the top of the park, where you’ll learn more about the overlook area, design considerations, and take a walking tour to envision various site plan scenarios. Gate to Uppill Road will open at 6:30 p.m.

Meet at Sullivan Grove.  From there, we’ll break off into groups, to explore the terrain. Parking is available along Toppill Road (map above). Accommodations will be made for individuals with limited mobility. Portable restrooms and water will be provided.
