WRAL-TV recently won an award for the beauty of the WRAL Gardens on its property from the City of Raleigh. The 21st Annual Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance bestowed the Tree & Landscape Conservation award on the station at an evening presentation on Thursday, October 2, 2003 at the North Carolina Museum of Art.

The Raleigh Appearance Commission coordinates the awards program, which provides public recognition to the projects & individuals that have made outstanding contributions to the City of Raleigh’s Appearance. Awards are presented in eight categories.

172 awards have been presented to developers, designers, building owners, community groups, civic clubs, churches and citizens over the past two decades.

The WRAL Azalea Gardens have undergone renovation in the past few years, as the television studio building expanded. Capitol Broadcasting Company Corporate Property Manager oversees the maintenance of the gardens. CBC founder A.J. Fletcher created the gardens and opened them to the public in 1959.
