After decades of neglect, the people of Atlanta’s Druid Hills came together in 1997 to restore famed landscape architect Frederick Olmsted’s final project — a 45 acre park known as Olmsted Linear Park. Though faithful to Olmsted’s original plan, the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance decided to keep a children’s play area, relocating it to more tastefully integrate it into the design, The equipment they selected, Goric’s Dish, Rodeo, Whirlwind, Spaghetti, Spaghetti 3, were chosen for their sculptural beauty as well as their play value.
