Cooper River Park is receiving a $23 million dollar overhaul, encompassing 374 acres across multiple towns. The renovation will include updates to the health and wellbeing of the river, a new stadium, and a new restaurant. The group spearheading the project of adding a restaurant to the park includes restaurateurs Kevin Meeker and Mike DeBenedictis, architect John Ruiz, and representatives of the Camden County freeholders.
 
The new restaurant will be housed in a building called the Hadley House, which has held restaurants in the past, the most recent having to close down last year. When referencing the vision and idea for what the restaurant will be like Mike Meeker said, "It's not about the chef, it's not about the owner. It's about the customer. When you build your restaurant around them, you'll hit it nine out of 10 times."
 
The park already generates about $110 million a year for local businesses, and they believe these improvements will only further that revenue. They see the restaurant positioned as a place people will travel to visit, not just somewhere to go because you are already there.
 
Part of the reason people will want to come here may have to do with the celebrity chef running the kitchen. Tony Clark is a renowned chef who has worked at places such as The Four Seasons, The Old Grange and the Valley Forge Casino.
