Wild & Connected
I agree that the absence of being adjacent to Rock Creek Park is a serious flaw. An areal view would show opportunities to connect with the Rock Creek trail and the Hayes Forest Preserve. Markings of trail distance can be small signs, tree blazes and perhaps signs about various native wildlife along with efforts to remove invasive species. Perhaps a pedestrian bridge over Norbek Rd to connect with the undeveloped forest on two-sides and some similar arrangement further along Avery to access trails and both Lake Frank and Needwood.
My final point is the design is 100% car-centric in a time where we "talk" get out of your car & use transit, here is a location with zero transit, poor road access, and limited infrastructure for sewer & water. Adding access via Taft Court only brings slightly better transit access off E. Gude. And, please do not have night activities & bright lights. Let the animals have some peace.
