Rollins Avenue Park Development

Project Description

The Rollins Avenue Park project is a new six-acre park development that will provide residents a tennis court, full basketball court, picnic pavilions with grills, playgrounds, a dog park, a community garden, drinking fountains, and a walking loop.


The Rollins Ave Park site encompasses 19-acres of woodland bounded by the Watts Branch Stream Valley, Rollins Avenue, and residential neighborhoods. Only six of the total 19 acres can be developed due to the Watts Branch Stream Valley and the immense changes in topography. Once complete, the park will be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible and serve as an activity node off of the Central Avenue Connector Trail.

Budget: ~$3.7 million
