Frederick Law Olmsted (1857)
Frederick Law Olmsted (April 25, 1822 – August 28, 1903) was America's most famous landscape architect and designer. Among his many achievements were the design of Central Park in New York City (with his colleague Calvert Vaux), Parc Mont-Royal in Montreal, and the pioneering garden suburb of Riverside, near Chicago. He also designed Jackson Park and Washington Park in Chicago, which are connected by Emerald Necklace, and the two parks at the center of a legal challenge to the construction of the Obama Presidential Center.
