The Lesly S. Smith Landscape Award was founded in 2011. The award recognizes a landscape design that is both in keeping with the character and traditions of Palm Beach, yet also original and forward-thinking. In recognition of her dedication to the Town of Palm Beach, the award is named in honor of former Mayor and Foundation Trustee Lesly S. Smith. Her late husband, Earl E. T. Smith, was the Preservation Foundation’s first Chairman. Earl E. T. Smith Park, located directly west of Town Hall, is named in his honor.
