Lisa Lothringer, Assistant Director of the Van Buren Township Downtown Development Authority, has been informed that the project she directed — the Quirk Park Splashpad — has been named the 2020 Park Design Award Winner by the Michigan Recreation and Park Association (mParks).
The formal award presentation is scheduled for Jan. 31 during the closing session of the 2020 mParks Conference and Trade Show at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. Lothringer will accept the award on behalf of the VBT DDA.
The mParks honors exemplary park and recreation professionals and citizen advocates. The annual design award is presented to mParks agency members in honor of outstanding landscape design, facility or architectural design, and park design. Awards are also given in Organization, Marketing, Individual and Therapeutic Recreation.
The $1.150 million splash pad, playground, and memorial garden were completed in 70 working days last summer by Davenport Brothers Construction of Belleville.
