Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing a Community to Live In

November 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will be learning about Aspinwall Hill, Corey Hill, and Fisher Hill, three Brookline neighborhoods designed by Frederick Law Olmsted while he was living in the area. We will be starting our walk at Corey Hill Playground on Summit Avenue in Brookline November 5th at 10 AM. There is public parking along the road. If you are taking public transportation, make sure you are on Green Line C. There are 3 stops along Beacon you can use (Washington Square, Tappan Street, and Dead Road). Head towards either Corey Road or Washington Road (which becomes Corey Road), till you get to Summit Avenue and take a right. We will then make our way across Beacon to Schick Park, and end our walk at Sumner Road, before Route 9. This is not a loop and there will be an option to continue on Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site. We will be walking just under 2 miles at will take a little over 1 hour. Please contact isael_schulman@partner.nps.gov if any questions arise.
