From the Library – NEXT THURSDAY (9/9/21): Rochester’s Olmsted Parks
Frederick Law Olmsted is “The Father of American Landscape Architecture,” and he’s best known for his work on Central Park and the Midway at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, but he also made several major contributions to Rochester’s park system, including Genesee Valley Park, Highland Park, Seneca Park, and Maplewood Park.
You can learn more about Olmstead’s local connection by joining us (via Zoom) for Rochester’s Olmsted Parks on Thursday, September 9, at 7:00 PM. A speaker from the Cornell Cooperative Extension will join us to present an introduction to the life and accomplishments of Frederick Law Olmsted.
