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.
Planting native trees and shrubs, restoring historic pavilions, mulching, painting, cleaning our parks…these are all things that your dollars support when you make a gift to Olmsted Parks Conservancy. Only through the generosity of donors are we able to pursue our mission to restore, enhance and forever protect the Frederick Law Olmsted Parks and Parkways.
A gift shows your dedication to the ideal that Frederick Law Olmsted Parks are the gems of all of Louisville’s parks. These parks should be held to a higher standard as they were designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. They are historic, unique and as such are of significant importance to Louisville’s culture. They not only contribute to our remarkable quality of life but also to our city’s economic prosperity as they attract high quality employees and boost tourism.
