Ravine Park (now Indian Canyon Park and Golf Course)
The greatest good parks can do in the direction of exercise for the mass of the visitors, is to offer inducements for the people to walk reasonable distances amid agreeable, nerve-resting surroundings. Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects, Report to Board of Commissioners, 1908
Olmsted's plan for this park highlighted the area’s natural topography and suggested constructing pleasure drives and walkways to complement the winding terrain. The plan also suggested the addition of small pools and creeks, and emphasized the necessity of continued maintenance of natural shrubbery and tree growth. Today this area is used as Indian Canyon Park and Golf Course.
