Rock Gardens Community
Backstory and Context
Alcoa, being a planned city, needed to have an neighborhood for individuals to live in. Not only was there the 12 streets area, and the area surrounding the park, but Rock Gardens was known to house the workers of Alcoa. Rock Gardens, being near the South Plant was an ideal location. Not only was this a short commute to work, but the commute to Springbrook park. school, and various other establishments were around five minutes or less. This allowed families to bike, walk, or car pool together to such establishments. Houses there fit families comfortably and the typical family found houses spacious.
