May GROWshop - Baltimore's Historic Parks!

Join Baltimore City Recreation and Parks and the Parks & People Foundation on Monday, May 5, 2008 for an inside look at Baltimore’s historic parks. Judith R. Smith, Friends of Maryland’s Olmsted Parks and Landscapes and Myra Brosius, Baltimore City Recreation and Parks will look at the Olmsted legacy and his influence on our park system today.

Location: Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory, 3100 Swan Dr. in Druid Hill Park Baltimore, MD 21217 (in Druid Hill Park)

Although Central Park is the first and most famous of Frederick Law Olmsted’s works, it is by no means his defining achievement. The work of Olmsted and his sons, John Charles and Frederick Law Jr., spans nearly one hundred years, with projects ranging from urban parks to town planning to ecological protection of streams. In an illustrated lecture, Judith Smith surveys Olmsted’s influence on the history of landscape design, reviews Olmsted’s extraordinary life, and considers the design principles he used to translate his philosophy to built form.
