Stuart Park wins award

Stuart Park has been recognized with a bronze award at the Design Exchange Awards for projects completed in 2010.

The award was presented to Stantec Consulting and the design team involved in creating the park, with the City of Kelowna listed as the client.

“We are very pleased Stuart Park was recognized for its design features and elements,” said Andrew Gibbs, park and public space projects manager with the city.

“It was a great team effort and the final result is a public place that combines visually appealing features and functionality that has a tangible benefit to the entire downtown.”

The Design Exchange is a non-profit educational organization based in Toronto committed to promoting awareness of design, as well as the role design plays in fostering economic growth and cultural vitality.

This year’s gold award went to the Vancouver Convention Centre, with the silver going to the Old Post Office Plaza in St. Louis, Mo.
