More about Olmsted Linear Park:
Olmsted Linear Park was planned by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., and his sons as part of the Druid Hills subdivision at the turn on the 20th century.
The rehabilitation of the park over the past 13 years is the result of a community effort through the partnerships of the Olmsted Parks Society of Atlanta, Park Pride, Druid Hills Driving Club and the Druid Hills Civic Association. Together these groups form the Olmsted Linear Park
