Tell the Parks Dept what YOU Want at Wall Park

On Wednesday, September 18th from 7pm – 9pm, the Parks Department is hosting a public meeting to discuss the renovation of Wall Park.  Expected to be an exciting feature of White Flint, the vision for Wall Park can be developed by us – the public!

Although the park is mainly a surface parking lot right now, the White Flint plan calls for a garage to replace the lot so green-space can go there instead.  Ideas so far have included a natural-element playground, picnic space, flexible play areas for sports like volleyball and badminton, and an area for food trucks to congregate.  The full plan also includes an expanded aquatic facility and new community center from the Recreation Department.  These will be discussed, as well.

Come be part of the process and tell the Parks Department how you would use a new Wall Park!  The meeting will be held in the Shriver Aquatic Center’s multi-purpose room. See their flyer for more information here.

I am a handicapped user of the Shriver Pool using the handicaped reserved spots directly to the left of the pool enterance. With the garage under consideration will we handicapped pool users have the same “easy access” to the pool entrance?

Accessibility has been a primary consideration in these plans and, while I don’t know where the reserved parking spaces are presently planned to be located, I know they are on everyone’s radar. When actual plans are released, we will certainly advocate for the accessibility all users are accustomed to finding at the aquatic center.
