About Us:

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 $10 million to ensure the restoration and preservation of the Park. Now, all six segments of the park — Springdale, Virgilee, Oak Grove, Shadyside, Dellwood, and Deepdene have been rehabilitated for everyone to enjoy. Children ride their bikes, exercise enthusiasts run along the paved pathways and dogs and their owners enjoy a leisurely stroll through the old-growth forest. This historic Olmsted Linear Park allows visitors from all walks of life to enjoy the tranquility of an urban oasis in the heart of Atlanta and the Druid Hills community.
