The Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee, NFL Foundation and The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation are teaming up to fund a major capital improvement project for the residents of Atlanta to provide a lasting legacy of the city’s efforts in hosting Super Bowl LIII.  The $2 million investment in and renovation of the City of Atlanta’s John F. Kennedy Park is a commitment to fostering play and healthy lifestyles and will provide the next generation of youth in Atlanta a versatile playing field for athletic competition, while giving the surrounding community a safe space for exercise and outdoor activities.

The City of Atlanta owns and operates the park and it is also used daily by the students at Hollis Innovation Academy and the neighboring community. 

The renovations at John F. Kennedy Park will include the following:

  • Full-level turf playing surface
  • Community walking path
  • Fit-Trail exercise system for fitness training
  • New playground equipment with soft turf underpinning
  • New hard-court basketball court
  • Shade picnic pavilion
  • Sidewalk lighting for evening use
  • The existing playground equipment from John F. Kennedy Park will be repurposed, upgraded and placed in Ashby Circle Playlot. The completely renovated John F. Kennedy Park will be unveiled the week of Super Bowl LIII with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
