The Olmstead Legacy - America's Urban Parks

Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio would like to invite you, your family, and friends to view an informative film presentation followed by a time of Q&A with Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio and City staff.

151 years after Frederick Law Olmstead designed New York City's Central Park, it remains an undisputed haven of tranquility amidst one of the most unnatural places on earth.

The Olmsted Legacy, a one-hour documentary, examines the formation of America's first great city parks through the enigmatic eyes of Frederick Law Olmstead (1822-1903), visionary urban planner and landscape architect. The film features Academy Award winning actor Kevin Kline.

Seating is limited! Please RSVP via email or telephone: Tina West at 408 535-4906. Please provide first and last name of each attendee, contact telephone and email information. A confirmation email with directions and information will be sent upon receipt of RSVP.
