Home Rodney Cook Sr. Park at Vine City
This new $40m Park in Atlanta showcases how engineering can improve community health and economic well-being, empowering the Vine City neighbourhood — once home to civil rights icons— by transforming 16 acres of empty lots into a welcoming destination.
A collaboration of the City of Atlanta, The Trust for Public Land, community leaders and engineering professionals, Cook Park combines innovative engineering with acres of amenities, helping to fulfil city goals and applying green infrastructure to tackle long-standing challenges.
Atlanta’s Vine City neighbourhood had an illustrious history as a once-thriving community and home to leaders including Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. But the area declined over the years, and homes often flooded when storms overwhelmed the City’s combined sewer system.
The City eventually bought out homeowners, but the land sat empty for more than a decade awaiting redevelopment. Rodney Cook Sr. Park provides the long-sought solution. This dual-purpose park and watershed management project demonstrates engineering commitment to civic improvement through quality, sustainable, environmentally conscious design.
