The park celebrated its grand reopening in late 2022. It is named after Jesse Owens, an American runner who won four gold medals in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Today, he’s still considered one of the greatest athletes of all time.
Many features in the park pay homage to Mr. Owens and the sport of running. But perhaps the most notable park attribute is the playground surfacing which is designed to look like a running track that encircles the playground equipment.
