With Gateway Park getting significant investment  and Tandy hills being just a highway away, it seems they should be better connected. 

 

Here's a plane eye view showing how, without I30, they'd basically be one park anyway.

Some over/underpasses could do wonders connecting the two and maybe even encourage movement between the neighborhoods around the park.

I could see where a bridge could be built across the river then have a tunnel go under I-30 to connect with Tandy Hills.  The ability to access Gateway Park from south of I-30 would be great, but I would be a little concerned with having a concrete path through the Tandy Hills area, especially should that lead to adverse impacts upon the prairie remnants there.
