Two of Sydney’s parks and public spaces have been awarded top prizes at NSW’s landscape industry awards.
December 15th, 2015
Sydney Park at St Peters and the Napier Street Reserve in Paddington both won the gold prizes in their categories at the 2015 LNA Master Landscapers Association.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, “The Sydney Park wetlands projects and Napier Street Reserve are two fine examples of how good design and landscaping can transform our public places and make them more enjoyable for residents, city workers and visitors.”
The Sydney Park wetlands project uses scenic cascades to create one of the largest stormwater harvesting systems in Australia, while also creating a haven for native frogs and birds and encouraging bush regeneration. The Sydney Park project won three awards for Design Landscapes: a gold award for best commercial sustainable landscapes project, a silver for best commercial civil project over $1 million, and a silver for best open space parklands.
The Napier Street Reserve upgrade includes large paved areas and beautiful landscaped gardens that replaced the dusty surface that previously sat beneath fig trees near the UNSW Art & Design campus. The reserve upgrade won two awards for Hargraves Urban: a gold award for best commercial civil project and the prestigious Graham Ross Commercial Award.
