Fred's Facts

Parks build healthy communities by creating stable neighborhoods and strengthening community development. Research shows that residents of neighborhoods with greenery in common spaces enjoy stronger social ties.

Boo La La Halloween Ball


Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, there are two sides to every story—even the story of the Olmsted Parks:

On one hand, the 18 Frederick Law Olmsted Parks offer places to walk and play, hike and bike and for some in Louisville, the Olmsted Parks are the only green spaces they have to enjoy.

On the other hand, rarely do we stop to think about the resources necessary to keep the parks extraordinary. It’s FREE to enter and use the Olmsted Parks, but they are certainly NOT FREE to keep healthy, beautiful and safe.

To help this Strange Case, Olmsted Parks Conservancy invites you to ATTEND LOUISVILLE’S BEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY. This is our largest fundraiser to raise critical funds to support the Parks.
