The Kentucky Chapter American Public Works Association (APWA) has selected Qk4’s work with the Parklands of Floyds Fork, Phase 3A for the 2013 APWA Outstanding Achievement Award in the Parks category. Qk4’s project was selected over numerous entries for the recognition.
The award was presented at the APWA Chapter Awards Luncheon on Thursday, September 26, 2013, at the Crown Plaza/Campbell House Inn in Lexington, Kentucky.
The ambitious project, which was funded through public and private funds, will ultimately create a world-class park system including 100 miles of trails that will encircle Metro Louisville.

- Excursion Trail (stone): 5.2 miles
