" The,steering committee broke into working groups to formulate their comments. Some of the comments brought forward by the group included the following: The entrance to Cape Hen- lopen State Park, as recommended by the consultants, should be much more prominent than it is now. "The entrance area is very important," said Granke for her group. "There should be good landscaping and the kind of signs that make people feel they've come to a special place." Several groups agreed also that a new visitors center for the park, along with administrative offices, should be built near a new entrance. Moore called the Gordon's Pond parking area of Cape Hen- lopen, at the Rehoboth Beach end of the park, "the forgotten stepchild of Cape Heulopen State Park. Our group agreed that the area needs attention and suggests that if the area is closed seasonall3, I that a portion of the access be kept open for trail access." Another group suggested that minimal wash-off facilities be provided for sunbathers and swimmers. One group suggested that a bathhouse be added while another group said that a comfort station be added but no bathhouse. It was also suggest- ed that the parking area be im- proved but not expanded.
