Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks

Open Space Seattle 2100 gets great coverage in this month's Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks newsletter. This organization, which is helping sponsor the Open Space Seattle 2100 project, is a great organization that has been providing stewardship of Seattle's Olmsted park's legacy for over 25 years.

In the newsletter's masthead is an amazing quote from the Post-Intelligencer from 1902, wherein their editorial board writes the following: "We must build. . .not merely for today, but for twenty, fifty, a hundred years hence. . . . a system of squares, public parks and drives which will answer the needs of a city of half a million people."

We are there. In another hundred years, projections are for more than 1 million in the city of Seattle alone. What might we look like then?
