AED Presents: FDR Park - A Resilient Vision for a Historic Park 

The FDR Park Master Plan represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reimagine a historic public space, designed by the Olmsted Brothers, sons of prominent landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, to serve 21st century Philadelphians. 

Project leaders will discuss an ecologically resilient, community-supported vision for the future of FDR Park and its position as a critical piece of civic and public health infrastructure, a signature open space asset that meets the needs of an inclusive and diverse set of users.

Panelists include: 

  • Charles B. Neer, WRT, Senior Associate, PLA, ASLA
  • Allison Schapker, Fairmount Park Conservancy, Chief Projects Officer
  • Michael Trumbauer, Biohabitats, Chesapeake\Delaware Bays Bioregion Team Leader, CERP
