The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be presented at the three-acre park, 2659 Barrett Lakes Boulevard, Kennesaw, at the corner of Barrett Lakes Boulevard and Cobb Place Boulevard about halfway along the Noonday Creek Trail.

This park will include a viewing pavilion where visitors may watch the nearly 200 planes arriving and departing each day, an aviation-themed playground, restrooms, historical information and a public art display while incorporating the existing Zagster bike share station.

With modern amenities, Aviation Park includes:

  • A rubber mock runway under a Corocord airplane structure, which consists of a rope-and-cable climbing system, for the playground.
  • Spinner bowls mimicking the light placement along a typical runway.
  • Standard, toddler and basket swings for American Disabilities Act accessibility.
  • An ICON climbing structure to offer park visitors a combination of a S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)-themed electronic play system and physical activity.

Designed by Arcadis with initial concepts by Winter Design, Aviation Park was developed by Integrated Construction and Nobility Inc.

Aviation Park will connect attractions throughout Town Center, representing the first effort of its kind for the Town Center Community Improvement District which undertook planning, design, construction and funding of the entire project.

Founded in 1997, the Town Center CID is dedicated to the betterment of the Town Center area through transportation infrastructure, safety improvements, beautification and other projects that enhance property value by using funds from voluntary commercial real estate taxes.
