Area residents and other stakeholders at last night's meeting were also encouraged to suggest their own types of parks. Their suggestions included fitness stations, a trail loop, "quiet nooks for lounging and reading," a pedestrian plaza like that outside of Barnes and Noble at Bethesda Row, an outdoor interactive fountain similar to that at Georgetown Waterfront Park, soccer fields, a bikeway connected to Rock Creek, a disc golf course, a parkour trail, and turning the Park & Ride lot at the Rockville Pike/Montrose Parkway interchange into a park. The latter would be one of the easiest ideas to execute, as Montgomery County already owns that land.
Attendees also discussed how to discourage cut-through traffic in the Randolph Hills area, ways to separate retail traffic from residential traffic on Boiling Brook Parkway, and how to locate some parks near current or future schools.
