The Busch Gardens landscaping team again wins top honors for its hours planting, pruning and weeding. For the 22nd year, the Williamsburg-area theme park has been awarded “The Most Beautiful Park" award by members of the National Amusement Park Historical Association.

The 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  European theme and landscaping with more than 125 flower beds, 300 hanging baskets and 700 container gardens.
