Progress from the Collective Effort: Rodney Cook, Sr. park in Vine City
Terraced spectator seating for multi-use sports courts is currently being constructed near the south end of the site. Installation has also begun for the granite curb for the Walnut Street renovation on the east side of the park. Over half of Rodney Cook, Sr. parks’ 800-ft-long steel bridge has been erected over the pond. The park is designed to seamlessly integrate functional engineering features within a programmed park space while providing park amenities to visitors of all ages and abilities. The park will feature ways to gather, connect and enjoy nature, including a playground, splash pad, aeration fountain and great lawn. It will also include a market plaza, multi-purpose courts and an amphitheater stage.
Partners in the project include the City of Atlanta, the Trust for Public Land and the National Monuments Foundation.
