Ever wondered why Bird Park looks the way it does? Curious to know more about the park’s famous designer, John Nolen? Then join us for a stroll around the park where we’ll learn more about this protégé of Frederick Law Olmstead and social reformer, as well as the design features he utilized to create a place of respite and relaxation in nature. Hot cider provided to keep off the chill! Meet at the Bird Park Office (look for office sign at the northeast corner of Vista Field). This program is being run in partnership with the Friends of Bird Park (www.facebook.com/friendsofbirdpark).
