Potential enhancements include a widened bike path
Planners will likely close the park for the duration of construction, but that has yet to be determined.
The Facilities Plan Report calls for a wider and more useful trail [this part of the trail doesn't run on the old trolley right-of-way. The trolley ran on Old Georgetown Road].
From the Report:
The park’s segment of The Bethesda Trolley Trail is too narrow to comfortably accommodate heavy bicycle and pedestrian traffic. It is also to narrow for the service vehicles used to maintain the park. This trail should be widened to 10’ to accommodate these multiple uses.
Green metal signs on steel posts mark the “Bethesda Trolley Trail” at the north and south ends of the park.
The Bethesda Trolley Trail should be constructed 10’ wide to accommodate the heavy pedestrian/bicycle traffic and to give adequate room for maintenance vehicles.
The Rugby Avenue entry is narrow and difficult to detect. It should be improved by reorganizing pedestrian and vehicular pavements to clearly define the park entrance and access onto the Bethesda Trolley Trail.
The art element should be placed so that it is visible from the Bethesda Trolley Trail.
Bicycle racks located in the park shall be U racks fabricated of stainless steel or galvanized steel with powder coated finish.
