WHAT: Help Gateway create a new vision for a great urban park in the 21st century. As part of the next phase of the on-going the General Management Plan (GMP) process, three draft management alternatives, each laying out a different direction for the park, are available for comments and suggestions. Information about the alternatives and GMP can be found on the park's website at
