June, 2023 – Olmstead Trail at Kirby and Nesbitt Park

Named after the designer of Kirby Park, the Olmstead trail winds through the lush woodlands alongside the Susquehanna River. You may recognize the Olmstead brothers from their work on some of your favorite parks, like New York’s Central Park and Boston’s Emerald Necklace. If you’ve never been to Kirby Park, but have visited one of the hundreds of other parks across the country designed by the brothers during the City Beautiful Movement in the early 1900s, then you should know you’re in for something special! With its serene ambiance and historic urban scenery, the park and trail provide a unique spot in the heart of a thriving city.
