Rodney Cook Sr. Park

Atlanta | Georgia

What We Did
Converted a 16-acre parcel of land into a brand-new park with a state-of-the-art stormwater catchment and filtration system.

Our Goal
Help revive a flood-ravaged section of west Atlanta while making the area more resilient to heavy rainfall.

Designed and engineered by Trust for Public Land and Atlanta’s Department of Watershed Management, the park’s innovative green infrastructure includes plants that manage and improve the quality of stormwater collected. The retention pond expands to store up to 9 million gallons of water that can be released gradually and treated properly to remove contaminants before flowing downstream.
