Connectivity: Only current connections that are safe for pedestrians are 12th and 18th; 15th, 20th, and 23rd would need major pedestrian safety improvements before we'll use them routinely. Please also provide slide decks from videos - as these are much easier to view, enlarge, and study than the videos. Can you show us 3-D illustrations for each park location, that would include the address and any proposed buildings? And explain in more detail how the spaces are different from what was proposed in the CCSP? I'm unclear about exactly what the Crystal Park space is - and what buildings will surround it and what those buildings will replace (e.g. the linear park with all of its great features). Remind us about any relevant shadow studies, e.g. for 23rd St. Park. Can we have more on the green network that will connect everything? What already exists, what is planned, who is responsible for what parts? It would be helpful to have locations for existing major park elements within a reasonable distance from Crystal City: playgrounds, sports courts, dog parks (not), picnic areas/grills, public bathrooms, drinking fountains, bike racks/bike share (needed everywhere), parking...... And why can't we post comments anon.?

Where do you reference Crystal City history? Combine with the BID to have interpretive signs, like the kind on the Long Bridge Park Esplanade. Even more, do a temporary display of historical photos. What about a CC walk that takes you down memory lane park to park, starting at the Long Bridge Park?

GAteway Park: dog park, multi-use courts, game space. This is not/not an area for active recreation. It is surrounded by residential buildings and needs to be a quiet space for enjoyment of nature.

Ruling out event space and promenade; also multi-use courts; no plaza or outdoor dining; I know the residents across the street would love a bandstand, but personally I think this would instead be ideal at the WATERPARK!
