Olmsted Parks Conservancy

The Olmsted Parks Conservancy seeks to restore, enhance and protect Louisville’s Olmsted-designed parks and parkways. The group traces its history to the late 1970s, when concerned citizens launched the grass-roots “The Friends of Olmsted Parks” to call attention to the worrisome conditions of the parks and parkways. After reviewing a report on park conditions prepared by the group, Mayor Jerry Abramson established a task force which, in 1989, recommended the Conservancy’s creation.

Its offices are at 1299 Trevilian Way, and the phone number is 502-456-8125.
