Frederick Law Olmsted is America's first and greatest landscape architect. The man who created New York City’s Central Park once said, "A park is a work of art, designed to produce certain effects upon the minds of men." His system of parks and parkways in Buffalo is historic because it is the first of its kind in the nation and represents one of his largest bodies of work. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks System consists of six major parks, their connecting parkways and circles, and several smaller spaces.
