Active / Passive Use

    • “The Park should be comprised of a mix of active and passive uses. About 30% of the total area should be dedicated for active recreational uses such as tennis courts, basketball courts, or children’s playgrounds. The remaining 70% should be a mix of hard and soft landscaped areas.”
  • Connectivity
    • “The Potomac Yard Park…is connected to the citywide trail system at Four Mile Run and at Braddock Road.”
    • “…Connect to the citywide system of open spaces and natural corridors.”
  • Stormwater
    • Potomac Yard Park “includes approximately 3 acres of open water feature used for BMP [Best Management Practices] ponds.”

Urban Design Guidelines

Landscape Buffer

    • “The eastern edge of the Park should be shielded from the noise and view of the railroad by an attractive landscape buffer.”
  • Simpson Field
    • Provide “a significant extension of the Simpson Field which can accommodate two regulation-sized large play fields.”
  • Planting
    • “Potomac Yard Park is envisioned as an informal park with naturalized plantings. The Park shall include a variety of spaces, some of which are tree covered, shady areas and some that are open, sunny spaces.”
