Fresh off the premiere in Prospect Park, The Olmsted Legacy screened for parks leaders and policy makers in Denver on Wednesday.  We were thrilled to be joined by Denver Parks Commissioner Kevin Patterson, Catherine Nagel of the City Parks Alliance,  urban parks guru Peter Harnik, and Jonas Olmsted, distant relative of FLO himself, and, as an architect, living torchbearer of the Olmsted legacy.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting.  City Park set the stage in Denver not only for the film, but incomparable views of the city’s skyline, and its characteristic Rockies in the distance.
