The Dilworth Park project won the professional award for excellence in urban design which is one of seven professional categories for ASLA's 2020 awards.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) announced their 2020 Professional and Student Award Winners. The association received 567 submissions for their professional awards and from that pool they chose 31 winners. According to ASLA the recipients are the best representation of landscape architecture within the different categories for their awards: general design, urban design, residential design, analysis and planning, communications, and research. In addition to those categories, a Landmark Award is also presented to one winner each year.

Additionally, there were 560 submissions for the student awards under the general design, urban design, residential design, analysis and planning, research, communications, student collaboration, and student community service categories. Among them, 35 winners were selected.

Wendy Miller, ASLA president, made a statement regarding the awards. She said, "ASLA's Professional and Student Awards programs celebrate the best of our profession today, and the brightest hope for the future." She continued by commenting, "From making sure Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as other underserved individuals and communities, prepare for the many challenges of the climate crisis - this year's projects clearly demonstrate how landscape architects are designing a future that addresses the biggest problems facing our world."
