Poet’s Garden & Birthday Cake

April 26, 2012 @ 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM


The New York Upstate Chapter of ASLA and the Highland Park Conservancy have partnered for a celebration of Frederick Law Olmsted’s birthday in Highland Park on Thursday April 26, 2012. Olmsted designed Rochester’s magnificent parks system (including Highland Park), Central Park in NYC, and hundreds of other parks, campuses, and residential grounds around the nation. In addition to creating a plethora of scenic spaces for the enjoyment of the public, Olmsted’s designs and practices created a model for the profession of landscape architecture. Come out to Highland Park and celebrate Olmsted’s legacy.

6:15 p.m. – Meet at Lamberton Conservatory – Landscape architects will meet to pick up Public Awareness Campaign material and canvas the park. They will chalk sidewalks, plant lawn signs, pass out informational flyers, and ask park visitors to join them for the garden walk and (free) birthday cake.

7:00 p.m. – Meet at Poet’s Garden – Local Master Gardeners will lead a tour of the Poet’s Garden, followed by cake in celebration of Olmsted’s Birthday. Free and open to the public!
