Item Details

Whether flying a kite in Franklin Park, gardening in the Fens, or jogging along the Riverway, today's Bostonians are greatly indebted to the legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted. America's premier landscape architect, Olmsted designed New York's Central Park and Boston's emerald necklace. His invigorating influence shapes the city to this day, despite the encroachment of highways and urban sprawl. Zaitzevsky's book is the first of its kind: a richly detailed, fully illustrated account of the design and construction of Olmsted's Boston parks.
