Olmsted 200 invites you to join us in celebrating Frederick Law Olmsted’s 199th birthday with a watch party! Help us kick off the bicentennial celebration of Olmsted’s life, legacy, and the public spaces he designed across America.

Watch Olmsted and America’s Urban Parks, a documentary narrated by actress Kerry Washington, for free and at your convenience April 24-25, and then join other FLO fans for a live panel discussion. Moderated by TIME Magazine’s Justin Worland, our Watch Party Panel event on April 26 at 5:30 pm will feature diverse thought leaders exploring the many ways Olmsted’s values are relevant to 21st century challenges. Panelists include:

  • Dr. Thaisa Way, Program Director for Garden & Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection
  • Happy Haynes, Executive Director of Denver Parks and Recreation
  • Justin DiBerardinis, Director of FDR Park, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation
