Fred's Facts

Although captivated throughout his career by large, rural parks, during his later years Frederick Law Olmsted became intrigued by the social possibilities created by small urban spaces. Small neighborhood parks, playgrounds and squares might provide opportunities for respite from the congestion and noise of urban life.

Design for this park began in 1928 and continued until 1935. The sixteen acre park serves the neighborhood with both recreational facilities and open spaces.
