Louisville: From Olmsted to the 21st Century

Clip: Episode 1 | 3m 24s

21st Century Parks is a Louisville based organization that is building a 4,000 acre addition to Louisville's public park system, resuscitating Olmsted’s idea of building parks ahead of the growth of the city. The plan is that over the next 100 years the city will expand around an intentional, integrated park system, one that follows Olmsted's design principles.
