Summary: Modeled after the recent successes of Atlanta’s Historic Fourth Ward Park, the 16-acre Rodney Cook, Sr. Park seamlessly integrates sustainable low impact development (LID) features within a programmed park space. This presentation will describe the complex, social, environmental and economic challenges facing the project and how engineers and landscape architects worked closely to reach a common goal. This pivotal project represents a collaborative design effort between TPL, the City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management, the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, The National Monument Foundation, and most importantly the residents of Vine City.
