Piedmont Park Conservancy is a proud partner of the national Olmsted 200 Bicentennial Celebration. Olmsted 200 invites you to screen Olmsted and America’s Urban Parks, a documentary narrated by actress Kerry Washington, for free and at your convenience April 24-25, and then join other FLO fans for a live panel discussion on April 26 from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm ET about the many ways Olmsted’s values influence American life today.
Moderated by Justin Worland, TIME Magazine’s senior climate correspondent, the panel brings together a diverse group of thought leaders to examine how Olmsted’s parks and visionary ideas continue to shape communities across the country. Panelists include:

- Justin DiBerardinis, FDR Park Director, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation
