Frederick Law Olmsted
Frederick Law Olmsted is best known for his work in New York City's Central Park, but his design for Buffalo's Park System was one of his proudest achievements. Buffalo's Olmsted-designed parks are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Olmsted was born in Hartford, Connecticut. He teamed with architect Calvert Vaux to design landscapes and structures for parks in many major U.S. cities. He designed the first urban parks, greenways, and planned communities in the country. Olmsted was known as the father of landscape architecture; he named the profession and defined the practice.
