Commissioner Hall joins Mayor Keisha Bottoms, Arthur Blank, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the unveiling of John F. Kennedy Park
Commissioner Hall joins NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, partners of #OneAtlanta, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for the official unveiling of the John F. Kennedy Park in her District 4 community. The NFL Foundation made a $1 million contribution for the renovated park, which cost a total of $2.4 million. Other contributors were the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by Atlanta-based partners – the Chick-fil-A Foundation, Park Pride, Primerica, and WXIA. The John F. Kennedy Park is located adjacent to the Hollis Innovation Academy, and it is central to the Westside neighborhoods. The students now have a field for athletic, exercise and outdoor activities. The renovated John F. Kennedy Park will give children an opportunity to spend “more time away from technology and more time outside,” Blank said, before adding it also would be good for adults to spend more time away from technology.
