Project Description

Project Information

When completed, Aviation Park will offer the community outdoor possibilities that combine old-fashioned fun with access to modern recreation. The goal of this project is to convert high-profile but under-utilized green space to an aviation-themed park, located at the corner of Barrett Lakes Boulevard and Cobb Place Boulevard, adjacent to the end of the Cobb International Airport runway.

Aviation Park will feature an open space for airplane viewing, a playground area, parking, restrooms and a public art display. The area will continue to feature a docking station for the Zagster Town Center Bike Share Program that was added in November 2015.

Winter Design, a local landscaping design firm, has submitted project renderings for Aviation Park. ARCADIS, a global leader in developing natural and constructed assets, drafted and presented the Aviation Park Programming Analysis and Report in late 2015. The report included a design synopsis, potential permits needed for the project, a preliminary cost estimate and a preliminary design and construction schedule. Cobb County Board of Commisioners approved this plan April 26, 2016. Groundbreaking is expected Q1 2017.

Current Status


The Town Center CID is working collaboratively with Cobb County and the Town Center Community Alliance to secure local funding as well as philanthropic support for this project. Engineering and construction costs are estimated at $1.95MM.
