Fred's Facts

Cherokee Park, considered Olmsted’s most scenic work, focuses on the landscape experience of traversing from stream valley to ridgeline while Shawnee Park is fitted out for a variety of activities that bring people together, including a formal flower garden, a bandstand, and a great lawn for sporting events.

It’s Halloween, that mystical time when the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. Through that veil, the spirit of the Parks rise up and ask for our help. They remind us that we share in the stewardship of the stunningly-beautiful Olmsted Parks system and through our collaboration and care, Mother Nature is able to work her magic.

Boo La La is Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s most important fundraiser as it raises critical funds to support our work in three key areas: historic restoration, environmental protection and community well-being.

So climb aboard and tighten your seat belt, there is much to look forword to in 2016! We don’t want this party-flight to take-off without you on board, so secure your sponsorship now! Your support will help help us continue to support our treasured Olmsted Parks and Parkways.
