Rodney C. Cook, Sr. Park

Atlanta’s Westside neighborhoods need public open space and suffer from persistent flooding that has negatively impacted the community. A collaboration between The Trust for Public Land and the City of Atlanta will help alleviate these problems by creating a dynamic 16-acre park along Joseph E. Boone Blvd. Slated to open in 2019, Cook Park will provide sustainable venues for a variety of recreational activities while relieving local flooding by reducing the burden on the City’s existing water management facilities.
