Least preferred: bandshell and dog park. Both create undesirable noise/activity right under windows of multiple solely residential dwellings. Few activities with music held there in past years reverberated loudly and mercilessly on/thru windows across the street. Direction of sound away from buildings would be very important. Suggest bandshell better suited to Water Park, which regularly hosts musical events even now.

Called "Gateway Park" on the map, I like the floral borders and twisty paths before you get to Long Bridge. Calm and quiet, with a pretty grassy plot for people to play with their kids. Nice benches.

I think that quiet, beautiful garden spaces are badly needed in this neighborhood.

"No dogs allowed" spaces, as well as a separate dog park (where dogs can be off-leash) so that both dog owners and those who are afraid of dogs (or have dogs that don't react well to other dogs) can all be happy.

Gateway Park because with the exception of one event the BID puts on every year, it is lovely and peaceful, which is appropriate for a park located in a residential area. Other than that, the green spaces with moveable seating are the most attractive to me -- especially (once inside of it, not from the street) the one at 2121 Crystal Drive.
