What makes an urban park ‘urban’?

A side note on planning…

Planning efforts in D.C. are currently placing a strong emphasis on open public space. As we work to revitalize the national park components, it is interesting to see what concurrent urban park projects are in the works.

Will our forts (and batteries!) at the fringes of the city measure up to those parks from re-purposed infrastructures within the urban core?  How can we design the fort system to be as accessible to D.C. residents?
