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.

This four-acre community park was designed throughout 1919-1923, combines recreational facilities with landscaped elements.
