  • Wonderfully educational tour. Many thanks for the Freeway Park Assn. for organizing this event with the cultural landscape folks and to horizon house for the meeting space and refreshments. Excellent design insights from Brice Maryman and Ian Robertson.

    I was honored to work with the Halprin team on his final project which was truly one for the ages: the Rhoda Goldman Concert Meadow at Stern Grove Park in San Francisco.

    Please visit my local park Volunteer Park and enjoy the free 350* view from Seattle’s highest public space–the water tower aka the people’s space needle–where an excellent park historical display awaits to educate visitors.

    Please also inform yourself of threats and challenges to Seattle’s Olmsted legacy at http://www.protectvolunteerpark.org.

    Thank you again!
