Bob Cooke was a charter member of the Arlington Parks and Recreation Board and helped with the development of the city’s Master Plan. 

As a charter member of the Arlington Parks and Recreation Board, Bob Cooke helped to develop the city’s Master Plan. The park named in his honor is filled to the brim with everything to keep an active family busy for hours. For sports enthusiasts, there are tennis and basketball courts, a mile long hike and bike trail, and a multipurpose field. Should you want to take the fun inside, the park is home to the Hugh Smith Indoor Pool and Recreation Center. If you just want to relax and watch your kids do all the playing, there are separate playgrounds for small kids (ages 2-5) and bigger kids (ages 5-12). In 2011, a $20,000 donation from Summit Midstream allowed the construction of a new pavilion from which visitors can sit under and watch the ducks play in the pond that bisects the park.
