“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines

of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

  —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

(1956, “Birth of a New Age” address)


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park is a 29-acre public park with a unique collection of natural habitats, walking trails, and active recreation spaces.


For many years, community members have expressed a desire for the park to better represent its namesake through inspirational art, design, and improved amenities.

The goal of the MLK Park Project is to foster a ‘beloved community’ by:

  • creating a welcoming place for all people that ignites positive social change,

  • develop new and improve existing community gathering spaces and amenities that align with today’s community needs, and

  • preserve and protect the park’s natural features that make it a special and unique place to visit.
