Mary in Bingham Park

In this series we get to know Louisvillians who are passionate about the Olmsted Parks and support work of the Olmsted Parks Conservancy by being a member.

Mary lives near Bingham Park in the Clifton Heights neighborhood and began volunteering in the park 5 years ago when a group of neighbors came together with the support of the Conservancy to improve their park. The group meets monthly and Mary reports, “It has been a positive experience. I have enjoyed meeting other volunteers who share the same goals.” Mary also supports the Olmsted Parks by being a member. She says, “I support Olmsted Parks Conservancy because I think it is so important to have a good park system and green space for people to enjoy. Keeping up the Olmsted Parks requires funding and that is why I support the Conservancy.  With so much building and development, we need green space more than ever.”

Thank you, Mary, for supporting the Olmsted Parks with both your membership and volunteer
