Abstract: Some 150 years ago, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted envisioned New York's Central Park as a green oasis where people of all walks of life, regardless of community standing or socioeconomic status, could escape the bustle of the city. Today, recreation professionals are tasked with a common goal: Provide active pursuits to all users, regardless of ability level.
