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.

Seneca Park Entrance Improved

Seneca Park Entrance Improved

Thanks to a donation from the Seneca Garden Neighborhood Association the parkland located near the entrance to Seneca Gardens at Pee Wee Reese and Trevilian Way has been restored.

This area is part of the Seneca Park circulation plan. Work included mulching a path around some young trees, removing invasive species that covered Breckinridge Spring and a beautiful limestone cliff face.
