This year, 14 projects received a national award. Dale Hodges Park by 02 Planning and Design was selected to receive the Jury’s Award of Excellence, which is given to one project annually which best demonstrates the CSLA’s vision — that of advancing the art, science, and practice of landscape architecture.
