The weather wasn’t ideal but hundreds of people still turned out for Wednesday’s Party in the Park benefiting the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. Celebrating its 10th year, the annual hat party raised close to $1 million for the stewardship of the meadows, woodlands, and paths designed by the late great landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
