Seattle's park system was created with open access, accessibility, and city landscaping in mind. More than 100 years later, the Olmsted Brothers' model for our parks still stands, but it might be time for updates. Like Seattle, Buffalo, New York is home to one of the best Olmsted-planned park systems. Thomas Herrera-Mishler, President and CEO of Buffalo Olmsted Park Conservatory, will discuss the successful restoration of Buffalo's park system and the surrounding neighborhoods. He'll share how Buffalo's success could be applied to Seattle, restoring the city's heritage parks to their original condition. The lecture is preceded by a showing of "The Best Planned City in the World" and a no-host reception. Presented by: Seattle Parks Foundation. This event is co-sponsored by The Volunteer Park Trust and Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks. Tickets: $10 general admission; $8 for students and Town Hall members. To reserve tickets to this event, email reservations@volunteerparktrust.org. Town Hall member benefits: Discounted tickets.
