Known for its picturesque mountains and rivers, Chattanooga, TN, is a place for outdoor living. It is also a city that’s heart is based on strong community values. With this in mind, city officials sought to create a home-like environment for residents, as well as visitors, when revitalizing a local park. To accomplish this objective, they selected regional sandstone to form outcroppings and benches – overall developing an inviting atmosphere for the new Miller Park.
“The motivation driving the entire Miller Park project was something we loved from the start,” said Patrick Wells, CEO of Majestic Stone, the stone supplier. “The park sits right in the middle of downtown Chattanooga, but the preexisting park was outdated and underutilized. When the city decided to lead the charge on the renovation, they did so in the spirit of boosting community engagement — using the park to connect what had become a slightly disjointed urban corridor.”
