Atlanta park opens in honor of 92-year-old neighborhood matriarch killed by police
The new green space isn’t far from spruced-up Vine City Park, which replaced abandoned and blighted apartments in 2016. It’s also about six blocks west of the forthcoming Rodney Cook Sr. Park—Vine City’s answer to Historic Fourth Ward Park. Trust for Public Land officials recently told Curbed Atlanta the latter green space should start opening this winter. Plans call for a splash pad, fitness zone, plazas, children’s performance area, architectural bridges, and a stormwater-capturing pond.
