Love Your Olmsted Parks? Be Part of the Family as a PARKner!

Over 150 years ago, Frederick Law Olmsted was engaged to design a park in the City of Buffalo. Instead, he imagined a new urban landscape – the first of its kind in the nation – a city within an interconnected system of parks, linked by tree-lined parkways. Olmsted’s legacy endures today, thanks to you!

Your Olmsted Parks are FREE and accessible to all. With your donation of $35 or more, you help us ensure that these historic landscapes are well-cared for throughout the year. As a PARKner, you receive the following perks:

  • Regular updates on latest events and happenings in your Olmsted Parks
