Plein Air Thursday
Established as a park in 1872, Burnet Woods was developed on what at that time was undeveloped suburban land. Like many of the great parks in Cincinnati, BW benifited from the planning of a great landscape architect, George Kessler (1862-1923). Like Frederick L. Olmsted, his ideas were to create winding drives, incorporating the use of hillsides to provide distant views and overlooks, an oasis of nature to relieve people of their workday stresses.
