CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF JOHN NOLEN’S MASTER PARK PLAN FOR LITTLE ROCK

LITTLE ROCK – John Nolen’s master park plan will be remembered and the professional and student winners of the 2013 Envision Little Rock design competition will be announced Friday at an event in Little Rock’s City Hall. Leaders from The City of Little Rock, Keep Little Rock Beautiful and StudioMAIN will participate.

The first of its kind design competition, Envision Little Rock invited professionals and students to envision an iconic Gateway for Little Rock. This Gateway is centered on the intersection of Capitol Avenue and Interstate 30 and is an ode to a Gateway envisioned by John Nolen, one of the nation’s premier landscape architects and city planners in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, who created a park master plan for Little Rock in 1913.

Submissions for the Envision Little Rock design competition will vie for $3500 in awards determined by public voting as well as a professional jury.
