Sue Nicol of Friends of Seattle’s Olmsted Parks will be speaking on the Olmsted plans for Green Lake Park, Ravenna Park, and Ravenna Blvd. John Charles Olmsted began designing Seattle’s park system, including Green Lake Park, in 1903.
In October 2010, Nicol visited a FOGL meeting and presented on the history of Woodland Park and the Woodland Park Zoo. You can read about that presentation here.
