MEET THE DESIGNER OF CENTRAL PARK AND DISCOVER THE CONNECTION TO SPRING LAKE!
Kirk Brown portrays Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of Landscape Architecture, who created cities out of the American wilderness and began a conservation movement that still challenges us today.
Mr. Olmsted’s contributions to landscape architecture in the United States continue to inspire us today. His contributions include Central Park in Manhattan and Prospect Park inBrooklyn, along with many other Parks and Park Systems, Residential Communities, Campuses, Government Buildings and Country Estates. Mr. Olmsted believed in the restorative power of landscape, and the philosophy that guided his work can be seen throughout the United States.
This presentation is co-sponsored by the Spring Lake Historical Society and the Spring Lake Garden Club. It will take place on August 1, 2017 from 7:00 - 9:00 PM in the Community House.
