OLMSTED 200: Parks in Conversation (Virtual Tour)

Join us for a virtual tour that celebrates Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th birthday by exploring two of his New York City masterpieces—Central Park and Prospect Park!

Built a decade apart, Central and Prospect Park share many similarities, while also reflecting Olmsted’s evolution as a park designer. During this special event, Central Park Conservancy and Turnstile Tour guides will simultaneously livestream from each park as they highlight, compare, and contrast Central Park’s arches, meadows, and natural features to parallel features found in Prospect Park. Learn about Olmsted’s lasting influence on landscape design and public space and see examples of how these designs have been adapted to better fit with modern-day recreational uses and ecological practices overtime.

This is a virtual program that takes place over Zoom. Closed captioning is available. Only one ticket per group necessary. Please note: registration confirmation may be diverted to your junk mail.
