Park Project Fund


The most important activity of Olmsted Parks Conservancy is to conduct projects in the parks in order to ensure that the Frederick Law Olmsted Parks and Parkways are properly maintained and preserved. Such projects include restoration of historic amenities, such as the North Overlook in Iroquois Park; environmental or ecological projects, such as the restoration of woodlands in Cherokee, Seneca, and Iroquois Parks; or revitalization of parks such as Victory Park as well as ongoing maintenance projects, such as planting and mulching of trees and enhancements to playgrounds.
