Join Public Garden designer Ronda M. Brands for a tour of Fort Tryon Park’s world-class Heather Garden, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted’s sons in 1933 to be a key feature in this 67-acre Scenic Landmark park.

Learn about the Olmsted vision for the garden, its decline following the City’s fiscal crisis, the birth of the Fort Tryon Park Trust, and the Framework Plan developed by Brands and Lynden B. Miller that helped make it the destination it is today.
