2015 ULI Austin: Impact Award for Public Spaces

For its role as an advocate for and major contributor to the Boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake, the Trail Foundation won the 2015 Urban Land Institute Austin: Impact Award for Public Places. The award honors the creation of lively gathering spaces that serve as a public destination, and those that exhibit intensive use on a regular basis and act as a magnet for a broad spectrum of users. This award recognizes the Boardwalk as a stunningly beautiful section of the Trail that features spectacular views of downtown, and that has already become a popular destination for joining in Austin’s active, healthy lifestyle. Limbacher & Godfrey Architects was the project’s lead architectural designer.
