Forest Sports Park receives WLA Merit Award

18 May 2021

World Landscape Architecture awarded Forest Sports Park with a 2021 WLA Merit Award. The WLA Awards are annual international landscape architecture awards that seek to honour landscape architects around the world for their outstanding work and promote the profession across the world. This year’s World Landscape Architecture Awards received over 400 entries that were praised for the high quality of the designs. The Forest Sports Park design was awarded in the new category ‘Built – Urban and Regional Design’.

The Forest and Sports Park is an important link in the green network of the city of Guang Ming, Shenzhen. The first phase of the 600 ha Forest Sports Park was completed in 2020, including the red path, entrance plaza, forest area and a temporary loop at Bihu area. It has been a success since the first day people are able to use the park and its facilities. LOLA is currently designing the second phase that will be built later, including five innovative sports multifields, a nursery loop, a botanical R&D center and a sports R&D center.
