Josey Lake Park Takes Home 2019 Excellence Award

We are thrilled to announce that Josey Lake Park
has been awarded the TX ASLA 2019 Award of Excellence!

Josey Lake Park is a signature, 140-acre recreational greenspace that provides concurrent accessibility to nature and outdoor activities while also serving as a regional link to neighboring communities and commercial developments. While its primary functions are stormwater detention and conveyance infrastructure, the design objective was to take land typically designed for infrastructure and turn it into an exceptional amenity with various ecosystem types and multiple levels of active and passive recreation. Several other items were taken into consideration including long-term maintenance costs, varying ecologies and wildlife habitat, improving stormwater quality, and providing an area suitable to host community events.
