“Park access is very difficult. Need to improve stair, walkway and street connections for neighbors' access.”

“I do wish there was an option for the tennis court to stay. Also, the stairs leading up to the park from N Winebiddle St need updates. ”

“Try to keep the playground isolated from the other activities and especially from traffic. The walking loop is key for the future green zone”

“All 4 plans over rely on car parking. Improve stair connections to site, and re-routing the 89 would make more usable space”

“Keep parking between 50-60; the less impervious surfaces the better. Ensure accessibility via walking & biking are not secondary to cars. ”

“A new emphasis on walking and green areas. The main focus should remain for it to be a place for sports and a kid's playground.”

“Walking path that circulates around the entire park + more access. #4 has a nice layout but far too much parking/weird config.”
