In 1883, Frederick Law Olmsted established the first full-scale office for the practice of landscape architecture in Brookline. The firm would continue here in operation until 1980 when the site became a unit of the National Park Service. When they left, their portfolio would include over 6000 projects in 47 states and Canada - from expansive public parks, to intimate private gardens. During your visit you will be able tour the studios where many of these places were designed and explore the place that helped created some of America’s most beloved spaces. Special tours of the grounds will also be offered throughout the day.
