Looking at these two google maps, you can see possible compromises. Why does Highland blvd. have to cut through all of lower Highland Park the way it does? I've often wondered about this. Apparently it follows the path of the old conduits bringing water up Force Tube Avenue to the reservoir. Most people want to preserve the wilderness at the reservoir site, but do we want to preserve motor highways through the park? If Highland blvd. were to be re-routed to turn south where it meets Vermont Place from the west, and head south to Jamaica Avenue west of the tennis courts, it would free up a few acres of open space for new ballfields. Hopefully with natural turf. It would also cost a lot less than 46 million dollars.

At two meetings with community members, the parks department was told that more recreation facilities are not necessary and not wanted.

very true. I mentioned the idea of re-routing the boulevard because it's something I've always thought would make the park a nicer place. Probably not all that practical though. Preserving the forest obviously needs to be the priority.
