Monroe Custer Airport

Comments

Monroe has a 5000' runway 3/21. The airport is owned by the City of Monroe and is adjecent to soccer fields, softball diamonds and "Munson Park". The people that visit the park seem to enjoy the sight of GA planes doing takeoffs and landings, And there seems to be no problem with safety.

The airstrip has undergone wonderful upgrades over the past two years from a new owner. Barry Kirschner has installed a soccer field at the west end of the airport, a motocross course, a volleyball field with sand and two courts, a lounge with two pool tables, and an olympic size swimming pool. All of these are within 200 ft of the runway and taxiways. It is a beautiful setting.

Bachman Lake Park is directly adjacent to the Northwest end of the Airport property. The park is at a slightly lower elevation than the airport property and is less than 100m from RW's 13L and 13R. The park is a popular and heavily used venue in Dallas. The airport is home base for Southwet Airlines and also serves GA aircraft.

KRDB has two parks and one country club within the vicinity of the airport. Red Bird Park is less than 100m East of the airport property. Boulder Park is adjacent the South side of the airport property (across Red Bird Ln.) and approx. 600m from the threshold of RW 35. Oak Cliff Country Club is approx. 700m Southeast of the airport property and approximately 850m from the threshold of RW 31. The airport services GA aircraft and helicopters (including Dallas police helicopters). I hope this helps in refuting the proposterous notion that parks and airports cannot coexist.

The airport property contains two public baseball fields and a public playground. They are really not too visible in the Airnav picture, but they are quite popular during baseball season.

Girsh park, home to a couple baseball fields where little league games are held, and several basketball courts and soccer fields, sits one mile from the approach end of runway 7 at SBA (577 operations/day according to airnav.com). It has recently become a popular site for community festivals drawing thousands. The park and the airport seems to coexist without creating any trouble.

The Norfolk Botanical Gardens (the www.nbgs.org link), located in Norfolk, Virginia is positioned right next to the Norfolk International Airport. With eight airlines and nearly 200 daily flights, the Norfolk Airport is a very busy airport. The Norfolk Botanical Gardens is so close to the airport that there is an airport observation deck, which is near enough to one of the taxiways, you can wave to the pilots! People seem to ENJOY watching aircraft arrive and depart. The rest of the gardens run pretty much parallel to the airport's runway, 5/23. The Nofolk Bontanical Gardens, which is a beautiful and peaceful place, is certainly not affected by the aircraft. The INTERNATIONAL airport does not take away from the gardens one bit (I've been there countless times and my family even has a membership). In conclusion, it is possible to have even a MAJOR airport situated RIGHT NEXT to a beautiful place with a park-like atmosphere. To view some of the fantastic things the Norfolk Botanical Gardens has to offer, just visit the top link (www.nbgs.org). To view a map at mapquest displaying how close the airport is to the gardens, follow the long link (sorry about the length; hopefully you can copy and paste!). I hope this information truly shows that a really nice outdoors area is able to be located next to a large, busy airport. Thank you for your time, and best of luck in your possible "Parks and Planes: A Vision for Meigs Field and Northerly Island" project! Sincerely, Adam Baker; age 14

The golf course is a pristine 18 hole championship golf course that has a small airport located at the center of the course. You can't look up without seeing aircraft landing or taking off. In fact, there is a tunnel that goes underneath the runway in order to make the distance between holes shorter. This is a great example of how a park and a airport can work very well off of each other.
