Do you support the recommended Facility? I do not support the recommended Facility Plan
Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? I think the tennis court should also be marked with low contrast pickleball lines (similar to Leisure World). It should also be made clear that tennis has priority use and pickleball players must graciously vacate the shared use court when requested. This will provide 2 additional pickleball courts, which are in high demand, when there are no tennis players.

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? Glad to see Montgomery County is finally looking to keep up with popular sports like Pickleball the way City of Rockville and our neighboring counties are. Park design looks great. Please add gate openings to access courts on both sides to help keep social distancing. Thanks

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? Excited to see Pickleball finally get some dedicated courts but if I am to be honest, it's like building the beltway with one lane. Four courts in a county of over 1 million residents with Pickleball growth at 20% plus in just one year (2020), is incredibly short sighted.

What is your zipcode? 20815
How far do you live from the closest Picnic in the Parks site?
1/2 mile or less
How often do you visit a Picnic in the Parks site? once per week
Have you participated in the Picnic in the Park program by ordering take-out from a local restaurant and having it delivered to one of the nine parks? Yes
If you have participated in the Picnic in the Park program, was alcohol part of your takeout order? Yes
Please provide any additional comments We regularly participate in the program and eat at the park with a drink or two. We’ve not seen any issues arise from this program in our regular use of the park for exercise and leisure or our own picnicking. I think it’s an excellent program that should be expanded so long as good management continues — not just in the number of parks, but also the size of the alcohol allowed areas.

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? If 4 dedicated pickleball courts prove insufficient, I hope you will consider adding overlay pickleball lines on the tennis court

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? Please consider adding swing sets... At least one of them should be a baby seat swing.

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? I am most happy to see the addition of pickleball courts, but also am glad that the county was able to include all of the other sports and the dog park too.

Do you have any additional comments you would like to share about Columbia Local Park? Please keep current tennis courts open until the new courts are built so we have somewhere to play pickleball as it is our only way to exercise during Covid. Build the dog parks after the new courts are in!!
