Event Details

The story of Louisville’s largest parks project, the nearly 4,000-acre Olmsted-inspired Parklands of Floyd’s Fork, comes to life on the pages of a new large-format book, A Landscape and Its Legacy: The Parklands of Floyd’s Fork. Edited by writer Dianne Aprile and designed by artist Julius Friedman, this 195-page, fully illustrated hardcover volume covers the rich history of the landscape, the colorful characters it produced and the innovative process that led to the creation of the Parklands.


A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Dan Jones holds degrees from Yale University and Indiana University, Bloomington. He founded and currently serves as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 21st Century Parks.


Please join us for wine and cheese to celebrate the launch of A Landscape and Its Legacy before the lecture.


Reservations are suggested.
