Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating I went to Reid Park this week to see what was working, what wasn't, and what people were doing. Here's what I saw: A lot of families spending time together. People kicking soccer balls or using open space for informal sports. Literally no one on the baseball fields.

This plan has too much parking — especially the 30-space lot right in the middle of primo green space. Too many baseball fields remain. In general, the concept art on signs looks like a boring office park in Scottsdale, so I'm not super stoked about the new facilities. The renderings appear to have been done by someone who has never been responsible for childcare, never stood in the sun on a hot day, and definitely never done both at once.

I like that there are playground spaces near both the north and south ends of the park. I don't think desert botanical gardens are not the best use of Reid Park. If the goal is ecological restoration, distributed plantings of mesquite, palo verde, and other locally appropriate trees will better fulfill that goal than an isolated simulation of a Sonoran ecosystem ... and they also provide shade. People love shade trees! It's what we sit under when the sun is out.

I can't stress this enough. Plant trees that will provide shade. (And please don't cut down any mature trees! Even palm trees provide habitat. I saw an owl chilling out in a palm tree when I visited. He seemed to spend a lot of time there; there was a desiccated owl pellet on the ground below. It's appropriate to replace palms over time as they die off, but this city needs literally any trees so badly.)

And for the love of god, landscape architects: Please knock it off with these silly loopy paths. People want to get from point A to point B as they walk across the park. The weird kidney-shaped paths that look extra-fancy in a birdseye rendering are so frustrating when a person wants to walk from (e.g.) the rose garden to the playground at the northwest corner. Imagine doing this while caring for a grandchild. No one in is like, "wow, this unnecessarily long path is so whimsical."

If the golf course absolutely needs to continue existing, it should not continue to block bike and pedestrian access to the park from the east. The only way to the park is via 22nd, Broadway, or 5th — take your pick of four, five, or six-lane roads. The golf course has like four times the green space of Reid Park. It's big, exclusionary, and hostile to pedestrians. The number of features crammed into all these Reid Park redesigns are a reflection of how much public space we've sacrificed to a closed-off golf course.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 2 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 2?
Tell us why you gave Concept 2 this rating I like that this removes some parking. A central playground is less important than access to play areas for parents. The idea of integrating an artificial water feature into Citation Wash is like ... dude, Citation Wash is straight-up super-gnarly stormwater when it flows. The soil does a great job of capturing heavy metals dumped into the environment by motor vehicles. "I want my kid to play in a bioremediation area" is not a top outcome for me. Tucson just wants nice outdoor places to chill. We want green spaces because none of us have lawns. There's xeriscaping all over Tucson. The city needs a great big green space to just chill out and hang. With lots of shade trees.

I just want to mention again what an absolute waste of space the golf course is. There needs to be bike and pedestrian access across the golf course. No amount of "featurizing" Reid Park can make up for the fact that the city-owned golf-course blocks recreational access to the city-owned park.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 3 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 3?
Tell us why you gave Concept 3 this rating This isn't a park plan, it's a road-and-zoo-parking plan. This is hot garbage of the worst kind. Tucson deserves an awesome space to chill out, where families and kids can run and play. But instead this plan puts a road through some of the best green space in Tucson in order to provide access to literally a thousand new parking spots for the zoo.

Above-ground parking costs about $35k per spot. So is Tucson going to spend $35 to $63 million building zoo parking?

What a colossal waste of money and open space. Please, please, please don't put a loop road through Reid Park.

Why? (Optional) Because it's a city park, the use case is chilling out.

Is there anything else you'd like to tell us? (optional) Please don't put a loop road through Reid Park. There are so few quiet areas in this town where we can get away from cars. This makes me so sad.

Also, please build a bike/ped path across the golf course; it's ridiculous that a city-owned property blocks so much access to a city-owned park. Any park plan that doesn't consider access is incomplete.

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating Too little development of native landscaping, too much emphasis on sports (more than I think community use supports)
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 2 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 2?
Tell us why you gave Concept 2 this rating I would like to see much more native landscaping in the park, and I like the multiple, varied walking paths. I like the parking moved to the edges, but think it will be a problem at performances, so suggest more parking west of the performance center. I like the idea of a few flexible lawn areas from Concept 3, and think it is worth integrating here for sports fans and lovers of green lawn space. I don't like the centralized play area; as a parent I liked smaller areas (less chaotic). I would scatter play areas throughout the park as in the current design.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 3 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 3?
Tell us why you gave Concept 3 this rating There are good ideas here (multi-purpose lawns, improved performance center), but very minimal native landscaping. I don't like the centralized playground idea; I think parents appreciate smaller spaces, especially for very young children.
Based on the three concepts which do you believe…

Citation Wash: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
3
Why? (Optional) I like bridges; I'd like more native vegetation in the wash than concept 4.
Cooling Features: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
4
Why? (optional) Looks like a great place for kids to explore and adults also. Splash pads are health hazards.
Cultural Venues: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
1
Why? (Optional) I like the look of #2, but don't understand where you would sit. #1 seems more viable.
Desert Landscape: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
4
Why? (Optional) Trees are critical to make desert landscapes welcoming!
Dog Parks: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
3
Why? (Optional) Dog like to run, so dirt is okay. I suggest shade for the people more than the dogs.
Multipurpose Rec: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using 2
Why? (Optional) I like the mix of grass areas and specific use areas, with some native vegetation designed in.
Observation Structures: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using
4
Why? (Optional) I don't actually think any observation towers are a great idea. Too hazardous.

1
Why? (Optional) I like the water collection.
Pedestrian Infrastructure: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using

2
Why? (Optional) #2 is curved at least, integrated into the park. Not red, though!

2
Shade: Select an image that looks most like a place you'd enjoy visiting and using

Why? (Optional) In native areas, I think the ramada concept is least obtrusive. For kids play areas, shade cloths

What is your household income? $50,000 - $ 100,000
How far do you live from Reid Park? Less than a mile (1.6 km)
Is there anything else you'd like to tell us? (optional) I think the park needs a hybrid approach. I want much more native vegetation, designed to invite exploration and viewing, but think some grassy areas and lots of little playgrounds are needed also for families and casual sports. Upgrading DeMeester also makes sense if the funds are there.

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating free access green space is reCREATIONAL SPace period. splash pads are unsanitary by the cdc 2022 report and adds more concrete in the park which is unwanted.
people have always have had favorite ramada sites along with memories at those sites. people need to keep those memories and not have their special places rearranged for no good reason. dog park size is fine as is but there is no space for other sizes of dogs, more shade and places to sit but not to eat up valuable green space. agree with taking down baseball and sport fences and opening that up to the public and turning them into green spaces. dont need these developed necessarily but maybe adding some beauty, art, shade etc. in general we need more spaced out playgrounds not some huge conglomerate playground. we dont need an entertainment park for kids where they are all too many in together. they just made 2 nice new playgounds in the park. better to have smaller playgrounds spaced out and especially for special needs kids who need more quiet and not being overwhelmed. i would feel overwhelmed with too much in too small a space and the noise. kids are loud and screech. space em out.
leave the pond alone. mr reed had it perfect. leave it on. keep the quietest parts of the park quiet and introspective. dont need another stage. could use some nice seating but dont ruin a good thing please. underwhelm, not overwhelm.

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 2 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 2?
Tell us why you gave Concept 2 this rating we want grass! less development and less blacktop. we want a green space with grass. dont mess with the parking or you ruin access to the park. good parking is why the park is so well used and creates a bit of a buffer from noise, pollution etc. leave the dog park alone. its fine as it is and that parking is necessary. smaller playgrounds is better rather than a giant mess. sounds like a bad idea to just have a big one and for same reasons expressed in concept one objections.
we want trees, shade, quiet, coolness, green space and to leave things alone with some minor and well thought out improvements. while some of your ideas use nice words and seem to offer good concepts, the reality is that it wont be better in the end. we have seen this before.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 3 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 3?
Tell us why you gave Concept 3 this rating if i could give this a negative 3 i would. this has not been properly thought out or presented and is misleading. if you rearrange the entire park to make it a loud entertainment mecca it will be a disaster and unfair to those who want quiet . parking should remain free and a garage would only benefit the zoo. they constantly take more and more of the park space and rerouting the entrance would only benefit the zoo. need a buffer on 22nd so something there might be worth looking into. need more trees, shade, water structures, less blacktop. you have gone overboard in this redesign process and lost the park in the process. keep the zoo out of the park completely. this concept will destroy the park. we need at least one place where there is a remainder of cultural placement. these big concepts ultimately will destroy the park and all that it means. we need it as a community gathering place but quiet, green, simple with some minor improvements, not an overhaul that will do more harm than good. those who are coming up with these seemingly good concepts prob never even spend time at the park and cant relate to what long standing park goers actually value and want. get off your highly paid conceptual ideas and get down on the grass. experience the park as a native and nature lover. no way a road thru the middle of the park. that would be tragic and dangerous. none of these concepts do justice to what is needed and while you couch concepts in lofty ideas, behind them lurk some other agenda.....perhaps reasons for financial gain for certain companies or collusion with the unethical zoo? this park matters. please dont destroy it.

Is there anything else you'd like to tell us? (optional) reid park is being lost in these concepts. would much rather see fencing coming down, tree staging, better signage, cleaned ponds...where is the plan for this? no one wanted the whole park reimagined, just some improvements,nature features, erosion planning...leave the grass, oasis feeling and not overblown development and over building in the park. the survey was super confusing, misleading and took forever and hard to do on a small phone if that is all that is available. i appreciate the desire to improve the park but please lets not lose it in the process. its a park, not another commercial building site. keep it simple, green, well thought out and in touch with the natural environment and need for a cool,lush green space to meet many needs but quiet and peace being primary. please dont ruin a perfectly good place with big ideas that in the end wont bode well for those who love the park and the park itself. natural shade is gold. no concrete is usable space. the sports fields can be moved and those huge areas turned into much better spaces that will be more ecological and economical. please save the park. thank you

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating i don't like that the running path is a strange shape it needs to be a circle or oval. I think it would be a better use of space to have a running track around the baseball fields or some kind of field and have it be 1/4 mile. I also think the paths might be too much. primary an secondary? I don;t get it? just a single path that is of natural material in interior of the path and let the bikes use the multi -purpose one around the park. If you want to see how bad it is to have bikes and pedestrians together, visit the Loop near the Rillito park on a Sunday morning when the farmers market is happening or after work. Its down right dangerous to have them on same path. I like that there is parking in multiple places, not just one big garage, especially for families with kids and people needing to unload for ramadas. Don't lessen the # of parking spaces and keep spaces spread around park but dont add that god awful road. NO MORE CONCRETE AT ALL PLEASE!
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 2 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 2?
Tell us why you gave Concept 2 this rating I'm not a fan of the parking pieces of this concept. And again the "running path" is not an oval but some weird shape. Just make it like a 1/4 mile track around something. We have so much desert here in Tucson we don't need MORE. We have the desert museum for that purpose in my mind and what makes Reid park unique is the lush green and ponds. Is one of these walking path routes a 5K? Don't mix bikes and walkers/runners on same place. I also liked n the previous one at least a Basket Ball court or two. The park could use some BB ball courts
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 3 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 3?
Tell us why you gave Concept 3 this rating I HATE THE ROAD! DON'T NEED MORE CONCRETE, WE NEED LESS. Folks can build a big garage, but U of A and the Zoo should pay for it because they are the ones that will use it. Overall, I think less is more and I saw some ideas at the open house that just overdid it like when they moved the performance area closer to Barnum Hill area. I thought that was 1) a bad idea and 2) a waste of money. The park is basically good as is, just too much of it is fenced off for baseball and we need an interior path of natural materials. Would like a quarter mile track around something that has lights like a baseball field and a couple basket ball courts would be nice. i also liked the simple kids water park idea that I saw at the open house that taught about water cycles. But other than that keep it mostly as is because COT doesn't have a great track record of maintaining things they build.

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating Taking away the baseball diamonds is not a good use of the park. There are so few areas where concentrated baseball field exist and there are many community events that utilize these facilities. I would favor repurposing one of the golf courses as an option. Golf is limited to those few who can afford to play and is not a mainstream activity for most citizens of Tucson. I like golf and play from time to time - but it is a game that few really participate in. More area for plants, walkways, etc would be valuable but this is not the answer.

Is there anything else you'd like to tell us? (optional) I feel that the city has failed in presenting practical options. None the 3 presented have much of an appeal to meet how I believe the city park would represent Tucson whether one is a resident or a visitor. People who visit Tucson, staying a local hotels and attending events may feel the vision shown, which ever one goes forth, really is not Tucson. Check out all the many uses of the baseball fields before taking them away from the community. Consider other options that better reflect the variety of our population. It is not just young families with children or old retirees. Tucson is active in so many ways

Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 1 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 1?
Tell us why you gave Concept 1 this rating Keeping as many of the baseball fields as possible due to the lack of baseball fields around town. Also, I am not sure about the desert-inspired gardens. There are certain water-conserving gardens on the UA campus to look to that allow for a good blend of vegetation beyond just the simple desert, xeriscape gardens.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 2 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 2?
Tell us why you gave Concept 2 this rating Once again, leave 2 baseball diamonds, and keep the playgrounds scattered so people don't feel crowded. Realigning the wash makes total sense in relation to improving water conditions.
Tell us whether you think these elements of Concept 3 are a good idea, neutral or bad idea.
What is your overall rating of Concept 3?
Tell us why you gave Concept 3 this rating Meh, nonplused on this concept. See my answers on #1 & #2. Plus even if you build the garage you still have a lot of parking lots and roadways and building a garage will bring in more visitors potentially overcrowding the park. Having a hammock grove could lead to vagrancy, might as well build a tent encampment. I will admit we have a homeless population explosion in Tucson, but there are other ways to handle that like creating shelters out of derelict empty shops.
