Heads up documentary nerds, there’s a free screening of Olmsted and America’s Urban Parks at the PHS Pops Up Garden tomorrow night.
The film tells the story of Fredrick Law Olmstead, the man whose firm designed many of the parks in the Philadelphia region, including “FDR Park and Marconi Plaza in South Philadelphia; Pastorius Park in Chestnut Hill; Washington Square in Center City; and other portions of Fairmount Park.”
He’s also responsible with New York’s Central Park, but we don’t really care about that.
The screening kicks off at 8pm in the PHS Pops Up Garden at 20th and Market. For more information on the garden screening, as well as details regarding future events, visit their calendar at pennhort.net/phspopsupevents.
