Where Did Cottageville Park Get Its Name?

Learn a little about the park’s past before you head to tonight’s open house.

Where did Cottageville Park get its name?

That’s been a recurring question as officials work to turn the former eyesore into regional destination.

The Cuningham Group, which put together the master plan being presented to the City Council on Tuesday, brought a historian onto the team to look at the Blake Road Corridor’s past and bring a sense of place to the park.

The team’s research dug up several details about the park’s history. They found the name “Cottageville” in the 1950s referencing a neighborhood surrounding the existing park. The area was also a creamery and homestead with cultivated field.

Check out Cuningham’s timeline above—and please share your own Cottageville Park memories when you’re done.

And don’t forget to stop in on the Cottageville Park open house Tuesday night. The Cuningham Group will talk with residents about its plan from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at City Hall. It will then present the plan to the City Council following the open house. Click here to take a look at the park plan before you go.
