New nine-acre public park in downtown Columbus featuring world-class gardens, a grand lawn, carousel, walking paths, an outdoor reading room and cafe. The park sits on top of an existing parking garage which remained in operation during the entire demolition of the 1.2M SF City Center Mall and the construction of the park. With a demanding schedule and the entire city watching, Corna Kokosing was able to design and implement CDDC’s vision and rejuvenate downtown.
