The Friends of Maryland’s Olmsted Parks & Landscapes is committed to advancing the Olmsted legacy of accessible public parks, sustainable landscapes, and livable communities—respecting and protecting the accomplishments of the past and seeking relevant solutions for the challenges of today.   In Baltimore and Maryland, we build upon a heritage of over a half century of distinctive contributions by the Olmsteds as we apply principles derived from their work to such current issues as park funding, watershed protection, nature preservation, recreational opportunities, and environmental justice.
