When 16-year-old David "Bumper" Cook was shot to death in 1994, a friend and neighbor looked for a way to honor the slain teenager. That friend, JoAnne Peavler, decided on donating a small stretch of grassy land -- a quiet sloping spot off SE 6th and Rodgers, across from the Collective Brands/Payless headquarters. The park was created with help from the End Neighborhood Improvement, the Topeka Youth Project and AmeriCorps. It is a peaceful green spot with concrete benches.
