Cook Park

Over the past couple of years, a number of concepts have been developed for the 16-acre Cook Park site. 


The final design for the project will respond to the site’s existing conditions, the context of the neighborhood, and the needs of the community.


Additionally, the park will incorporate elements of the original Olmsted brothers’ design that was realized in the early 1900s.
