Fred's Facts

Frederick Law Olmsted created landscape experiences, to have a humanizing effect on the citizens: to soften their harsh life, and to bring people of all classes together to interact and gain a sense of community.

This lovely thirteen-acre park, unique with its irregular shaped and rugged terrain, was designed in 1906.

More active recreation facilities are concentrated on the eastern side while the western half is devoted to more passive park use. A stone tunnel allows park visitors to move under the roadway without having to cross Baxter Avenue. This feature was a major characteristic when the Olmsted brothers were hired to prepare a design for the park in 1906. Completed in 1910, Tyler Park was named after Mayor Henry S. Tyler who died in office in 1896.
