Frederick Law Olmsted’s Birthday Celebration

Olmsted Parks Conservancy is toasting Frederick Law Olmsted for his Bicentennial Celebration!

Olmsted Parks Conservancy is working to create positive park activations to increase neighborhood parks usage and provide healthy recreational activities for park users. Our vision is to make all Olmsted Parks the most vibrant and inclusive parks in the community. Check out our list of events celebrating Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th Birthday!

Support Your Olmsted Parks by
Tapping into the Wooden Nickel program
at West Sixth April 28 from 5 pm – 8 pm. 

We are super excited to partner with West Sixth for the month of April in honor of Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th Birthday! For each flight sold, West Sixth will give you a wooden nickel. You can donate the wooden nickel to Olmsted Parks Conservancy or use it towards any West Sixth merchandise. At the end of the month, West Sixth will make a donation in the amount of nickels collected.

Tell your friends to come out, buy a flight and donate the wooden nickel. During the Happy Hour event April 28, West Sixth will double the wooden nickels, so each person who buys a flight can donate $2!


Olmsted Parks Conservancy and Glenview Garden Club celebrate the bicentennial of Frederick Law Olmsted’s birth and three decades of the firm’s work in Louisville over the course of three nights. This exclusive celebration is sponsored by Nugent Sand and Dentons Bingham Greenebaum LLP.
