ASLA Honor Award for Mary Holmes Park

I’m glad to see that the NCASLA (North Carolina Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects) has great taste in parks. We recently received an Honor Award for our beloved Mary Holmes Park. The award recognized projects that “demonstrate an outstanding, imaginative and well resolved solution.”

Our lead design firm Lappas + Havener submitted the project for the award and accepted the accolades at the NCASLA’s annual conference awards gala. I couldn’t attend the awards ceremony but I heard through the grapevine that the jury liked the following about our park:

  • Quirky design with great details
  • Lots of site sensitive small spaces that related well to each other
  • Unique play experience & blending of nature
  • Cohesive mix of custom design and natural materials

Be sure to check out the slideshow highlighting this park or visit any of the wonderful parks within our system.
