Walking Tour of Volunteer Park

Doug Bayley, FSOP board member and chair of the Volunteer Park Trust, will lead a walking tour through Volunteer Park. Learn about the park's history, the Olmsted plan for the landscape, and the integral role the park's city water system elements (the water tower and the reservoir) play in the park's design.

The tour will last approximately two hours.
