The Tysons Park System Concept Plan proposes recreational green connectors along the majority of street networks, connecting stream valleys, urban parks, plazas, and onroad bike lanes. The greens also provide buffers from the adjacent traffic. The placement of different park types and civic spaces, as well as an emphasis on cultural and natural resource preservation and interpretation, has been given due consideration in the Park System.
Public places that have been developed range from signature plazas to pop-up parks and temporary-use spaces. The needs of inhabitants and contextual response have been given due importance. Uses in these places are allocated based on recreational, cultural, and heritage perspective.
