Parks for the People! 128-Page Paperback - $15.99

Author Eric Burnette

A welcome opportunity to learn about the wonderful Olmsted Parks and Parkways, refer to as 'Louisville's Greatest Natural Asset.' Engrossing history of Louisville's Olmsted Parks weaves a tale of artistry and ecology, wealth and power, dirty politics and public service, whose echoes reverberate to this day.

When Frederick Law Olmsted first came to Louisville, it was a cramped, chaotic city, shrouded in a haze of coal smoke. There had been many public park plans over the years. All of them failed. Andrew Cowan led the drive for parks anyone could enjoy, rich or poor. And he knew exactly who he wanted to design them - Frederick Law Olmsted. But it wouldn't happen easily.
