Rochester’s Olmstead Parks Online

Then we will move to the early life of FL Olmsted, leading to the creation of Central Park. We will briefly talk about the major projects of Olmsted and the Olmsted firm after Central Park. And finally, we will talk about the Rochester (now Monroe County) Park System, partially designed by Olmsted.
