World Urban Parks is launching an Award for Large Urban Parks. Each year there will be a possibility for anyone in charge of a large urban park to apply for the award. The park will be judged by a jury panel according to a set of criteria. There will be three grades of the Award: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
Applications can be made until 14th of May.
Awards will be announced on the 30th of June. Awards will be given at ceremonies in connection with World Urban Parks Congress or regional conferences, whatever most practical for the recipients. In order to receive the Award representatives of the park must be present at the award ceremony and also present the park.
One such conference is the 2018 World Urban Parks Congress held in Melbourne, Australia from 14-17 October, together with Parks and Leisure Australia. Please check out the 2018 International Large Urban Parks Award website for all information including criteria to apply and how to submit your application.
