Fred's Facts

Member and Volunteer of the Month: Mary Brady

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
