The Olmsted Linear Park Alliance (OLPA) is a public-private partnership that was founded in 1997 to implement Frederick Law Olmsted's original vision for the Olmsted Linear Park through a master plan adopted by the City of Atlanta, DeKalb County and Fernbank, Inc. Through a series of capital campaigns, OLPA raised more than $9.5 million to ensure the restoration and preservation of the Park.
