Join us as we sit down to talk with high school students to hear their thoughts about the obstacles to learning they face in their academic and personal lives. This candid discussion highlights personal matters and peer relationships, family and home environments, and the support they receive in school.

“Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York” airs Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m.

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Frederick Law Olmsted, America’s first and best-known landscape architect, created an enduring legacy in Western New York. Perhaps best known for his design of New York City’s Central Park, Olmsted had a powerful and lasting influence on our community.

Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York,” airing Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m. on WNED-TV, is a one-hour original WNED-TV production that captures the architect’s impact throughout Western New York. The program includes documentary segments that capture the history and context for Olmsted’s contributions and interviews with local experts that focus on how that legacy is being carried into the future.

“Frederick Law Olmsted’s innovative landscape architecture was instrumental in shaping many areas of Western New York,” said Donald K. Boswell, WNED | WBFO president and CEO. “It’s amazing that over 100 years later, residents can still enjoy his creations and want to know more about the person who helped make our area such a beautiful place to live.”

“Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York” provides a contemporary perspective on Olmsted’s continuing Western New York legacy by examining the current status of the Buffalo Park System, the restoration of Olmsted’s vision for Goat Island at Niagara Falls and the rebirth of what has become known as the Richardson Olmsted Complex.

“The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is the proud steward of Mr. Olmsted’s legacy in maintaining the nation’s first urban park system,” said Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy interim executive director Stephanie Crockatt. “We are committed to partnering with the City of Buffalo in keeping this treasure maintained for its historic integrity, while providing healthy, beautiful spaces for the hundreds of thousands who visit and enjoy the parks year-round.”  

The program includes interviews with Crockatt; Monica Pellegrino Faix, executive director, Richardson Olmsted Complex; Mark Thomas, director, Western District, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

“Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York” is funded by the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation.
