About Us

The National Association for Olmsted Parks (NAOP) established in 1980, is a coalition of citizen activists, design and preservation professionals, historic property and park managers, scholars, municipal officials, and representatives of numerous Olmsted organizations around the United States. Its focus is the legacy of landscape work left by Frederick Law Olmsted Sr. and the firm continued by his sons.

For 40 years, NAOP has raised awareness of the importance of the Olmsted legacy. NAOP encourages scholarship, publishes key reference materials, supports local park restoration, and provides technical assistance in preservation efforts.

Today, NAOP serves as the managing partner of nine national organizations who together will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Frederick Law Olmsted and the importance of preserving his parks and places for generations to come in 2022. NAOP is building its team as its initiatives grow.
