Arlington County presented the Final Draft Design of South Park at Potomac Yards, a small rectangle of land on the north side of Four Mile Run between Route 1 and Potomac Avenue, formerly known as Land Bank F. The Four Mile Run Trail will pass through the park, and the park will include trail connections to both Route 1 and Potomac Avenue. It will also include bike parking, a trail map, signage and bicycle calming.
This is basically concept C as presented in the spring and it was the one I preferred because it created a direct and shaded connection between the trail and the street grid. It was also preferred by those who took the survey. Survey participants also preferred the name Luna Park.
In addition to the trails across the park and the connection between them, the park will include bike parking. Work on the Arlington portion of the park won't begin until 2023 (part of the park is in Alexandria and part is in Arlington because the line didn't move when Four Mile Run was straightened out) but in late 2018, they'll start work on "Phase 1" which will create a trail connection to Route 1 along with turf and plantings. Phase 1 has been modified a little since the spring. The trail connection follows a slightly different route without a transition area in the middle.
At least two participant at the meeting were concerned with cyclists biking too fast and running pedestrians down (don't do that). Another was worried that a lack of parking for the park would result in people parking illegally (don't do that either).
