Earlier this month CC-ASLA funded a booth at the 65th California & Pacific Southwest Recreation & Park Training Conference in San Jose, sponsored by the California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS).  This is the largest park and recreation conference in the Pacific Southwest, and the second largest in the nation. ASLA-NCC hosted the booth with volunteer staffing by Rosemary Cowen-Knight of Top Floor Design in Oakland, Michael Dillon of Dillon Design Associates of Santa Cruz, Lisa Harris of HMH Engineers in San Jose, Josh Plotner of Monterey County Parks and Dave Mitchell with the San Jose’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services.  Of the 190+ vendors at the CPRS Conference, approximate 9% were landscape architects from the firms noted below:

Callander Associates
David Evans and Associates
David Volz Design
Hirsch & Associates
Kimley-Horn & Associates
O’Dell Engineering
Richard Fisher Associates
RJM Design Group
Royston, Hanamoto, Alley & Abey
RRM Design Group
SITE Design Group
Verde Design

Next year’s CPRS Conference is in Ontario, California.  The vendor’s EXPO is a great place to see the latest products associated with parks and recreational facilities. Booth host volunteers get free admission to the EXPO… something to keep in mind for next year in Ontario, California.
