|1.||I believe echoing the park
with the theme of old that surrounds it, could be very effective in
making this park a destination that is desirable. Not to say I wouldn't
want play equipment, but something not chunky of a design that would
take away from the garden like atmosphere. In doing so, it would make
the park for all ages while keeping it simple. One wouldn't want to go
to a park to be distracted or distrubed by the sight, but to be
refreshed and re-energiesd by a park that focus is claiming by nature.
To create a space is to create another world. |
Thank you for
reading my little note. My neighborhood is very excited to share this
wonderful space. Thank you for your time and energy in making this
space a one that everyone will enjoy.

parking spaces. No games. No equipment. If there are to be benches and
tables have them near the streets leaving the park a green space with
some paths. Not manicured at all. Quiet. Let people make of it hat they

live in the line of homes who's backyards face the lot on Thomas. I
feel it's important that the park present itself well visually.
Anything is better then the empty lot we stare at now. It would be nice
if the city would fix up the fence that runs along each house's
backyard as well. It's very overgrown and rusted.|

would like to see this area as a green space with limited
‘improvements’ other than a green area for recreation and a sledding
area in the back. It would also be nice to have a few benches or picnic
tables to use and have this area heavily policed to prevent homeless
people from congregating within the area.|

believe a chipping green in the park would make it incredibly unique
and very desireable to many people. There are many ways to overcome
daily maintenence and yet have it retain the feel of a real green.
This, combined with other features, (fountain and gardens) will help
make the park a place of peace, rest, and relaxation rather than
another green gathering space. I am unable to attend the design
charrette so please, consider this as my vote for a chipping green.

equipment is a must!!! Something for children of varying ages, i.e.
toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-aged children would be ideal!
Slides, slides, slides please!|
can see this area from the majority of windows in my apartment so I'm
looking forward to quiet, visually pleasing, green space. There has
been some talk of making this a dog park which would be a horrible use
of the space. This is a very quiet block and it would be lovely with a
park that respects the peacefulness. Thank you.|
design the park to ensure that it requires minimal maintenance and uses
sustainable practices. For example, no mow, native grasses, native
