Questions for Drawing 1

1. Identify the nine parks in the Emerald Necklace and give a brief description of each.

2. Does seeing the layout of the Emerald Necklace help you to understand the value of Olmsted's vision for a series of parks rather than one large park? If so, how?

* The drawing on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Drawing 1, but be aware that the file will take as much as 90 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
