Fred's Facts

Frederick Law Olmsted was nominated as a Republican Vice-Presidential candidate in the 1872 presidential election.

Boo La La Halloween Ball


Pristine views. Thriving forests. Playgrounds filled with happy children. Olmsted Parks are picturesque refuges from the city’s hustle and bustle. But just under their surface is a parallel universe, an upside down world where nothing is predictable. On this All Hallows Eve universes may collide…

Stranger things have been known to happen.

Come disguised in your most outlandish costume or attire for a night of celebration benefiting Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
