WASHINGTON — The federal government has invited comments on “adverse effects” the Obama Presidential Center may have on Jackson Park and a leading landscape advocacy group has three big ones: the planned iconic high-rise tower; the proposed closing of Cornell Drive and not taking into account the historic Frederick Law Olmsted designs for the related Midway Plaisance and Washington Park.

The closing of Cornell has sparked an enormous community outcry.


Quote:
These three South Side parklands have a history stretching back to 1869, when the Illinois General Assembly carved out 1,055 acres for permanent open space. Olmsted and his partner, Calvert Vaux, already known for Central Park in New York, completed their designs for the Chicago parks in 1871. Jackson and Washington parks were connected via the Midway.
