Busch Gardens Williamsburg wins most beautiful theme park award for 22nd year

PressemitteilungWILLIAMSBURG, VA (May 8, 2012) – The Busch Gardens landscaping team has been putting in many long hours planting, pruning and weeding that is again being recognized by the industry experts. For 22 consecutive years, the Williamsburg-area theme park has been awarded "The Most Beautiful Park" award by members of the National Amusement Park Historical Association.

"This truly reflects the passion and hard work exhibited by our landscaping team,” said Busch Gardens’ President Carl Lum. "This award has tremendous meaning to our team members.”

The NAPHA survey is the oldest of its type. "Over the past twenty-six years, the survey has been highly regarded not only to enthusiasts, but to the industry. Many parks feature the results prominently in their marketing and advertising materials,” said Marlowe McClasky Futrell, NAPHA’s survey coordinator.

When originally built in 1975, care was taken to preserve the mature landscaping and natural terrain of the park. To this day, the park carefully stays true to its beautiful European theme and landscaping with more than 125 flower beds, 300 hanging baskets and 700 container gardens.
