Agree. A major problem is that parks are not connected. Also, some of the best park spaces are in the terraces one flight up and behind building. For example the park areas between Crystal Drive and Clark/Bell between 12th and 15th streets. Great quiet areas that few people know about or seem to use.

The relaxing and flexible Gateway Park that is used by all neighbors as their back yard and serves strollers, tots, dogs, teens , adults and seniors. Seen everything from group Tai Chi to frisbee, to learning to walk, or hit a golf ball, or cast a fishing rod, hit a baseball,or pizza party, or put a foot on grass for the first time, watch butterfies, paint, sun bathe, kanoodle, just hang out and so much more!

Gateway Park at the north end of Crystal Drive is a lovely spot used by many residents in a number of ways. The open lawn is popular for picnicking families. Parents teach their toddlers to play catch or toss frisbees. You can play with your dog, stroll the paths with your strollers or just sit on the benches and enjoy watching all these activities. Many elders use the benches or the path, which because it is "out of the way" isn't in the path of joggers and bicyclists. Occasionally, the city is able to use it for an event such as "Pups and Pilsners" or hold an afternoon concert on the grass. It will soon be the last piece of truly open grassy lawn space on Crystal Drive, and it is beloved by the residents. In the past, those residents were mostly elders...but increasingly, we see young families flocking here with their children to enjoy a quiet, safe, truly green, family-oriented oasis in the middle of the urban neighborhood. Please keep this well-used, coveted, increasingly popular green space!

Access across/over/under the railroad to get to Roaches Run, with perhaps either trails or a boardwalk, blended properly into the landscape, would be wonderful.
