Frederick Law Olmsted’s “picturesque” style is seen in step and broken terrain, planted thickly with ground covers, shrubs, vines and creepers to achieve an effect of profusion and mystery.
The Olmsted Firm took great care to arrange many recreational facilities along with a bandstand at the center of the park. Adjoining this lovely, neighborhood park is the Shelby Park Community Center, an original Carnegie Libary.
