You may know that landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted designed New York’s Central Park and Boston’s Emerald Necklace, but did you know he also drew up plans for the 250-acre World’s End reservation in Hingham?
Join fellow alum on a hike with a World’s End guide to learn more about Olmsted’s influence at World’s End and how his design continues to bring joy to visitors, generation after generation. We’ll discuss the previous landowners of the property, Olmsted’s original design, and how World’s End eventually became a Trustees reservation. We will hike the beautiful carriage paths at World’s End and take in the amazing views of the Boston skyline and harbor islands from Planter’s Hill and see why World’s End has become the popular day trip destination it is for so many today.
This is an easy-to-moderate one-hour hike. Limit 20. Registration closes on November 3, 2022. An email with further details will be sent a few days prior to the hike.
