The final Willow Park Concert for tonight (August 31) has been cancelled.

Due to the significant rain we have received over the past several days , the park is too wet to set up the staging required for the Ovation Orchestra.  As it was the last of the season, the concert will not be rescheduled.

Park Stewards Needed!

You may enjoy walking your dog in one of our beautiful Olmsted Parks, riding your bike or meeting friends there, but have you ever thought of becoming a Park Steward? A Park Steward is a volunteer leader who receives in-depth training by Olmsted Parks Conservancy staff in order to help with park projects, volunteer events and/or community outreach. The training program covers plant identification, best practices for invasive plant removal, proper planting techniques, the history of the Olmsted Parks, and more.

August 19, 2014 is the start of our next Park Steward training.
