The original McMillan Park gardens were designed by Frederick Law Olmstead Jr. His father, Olmstead Sr., is known as the “father of American landscape architecture, having designed New York’s Central Park, the U.S. Capitol grounds, Stanford University and the country’s oldest state park, the Niagara Reservation in Niagara Falls. DC residents enjoyed access to McMillan park until WWII. In 1985, the slow sand filtration plant at McMillan was replaced with a new rapid sand filter plant.
