Once again, Railroad Park is receiving recognition as one of the best green spaces in the nation. The American Horticultural Society is honoring the park this spring with the 2014 Urban Beautification Award. This award is given to an individual, institution, or company for significant contributions to urban horticulture and the beautification of American cities. The park is also featured in the March/April issue of The American Gardener.
The award will be presented on the evening of June 5, 2014 during the Great American Gardeners Awards Ceremony and Banquet at the American Horticultural Society’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. The American Horticultural Society was founded in 1922 and is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making America a nation of gardeners, a land of gardens.
