Kessler Legacy Award


PGASLA recognizes those works of Landscape Architecture that have endured in the Prairie Gateway region and are a viable component of our regional landscape heritage.  The works must be located within the Prairie Gateway boundary, must be constructed and/or completed at least twenty years ago and must remain as viable today as they were when originally completed.  Originally called the Landscape Legacy Award, the name was changed to the Kessler Legacy Award to honor George Kessler who first helped promote the City Beautiful movement in Kansas City.
