The plans for the city portion of the Meadowcreek Parkway along the eastern edge of McIntire Park. The Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park pursued a series of lawsuits to stop construction, including one against the Federal Highway Administration which will be heard on April 25, 2012. 
McIntire Park is home to a nine-hole golf course that would be disrupted or eliminated by Parkway construction. The group Save McIntire Golf is advocating for retention of the course in some form because it is home to the First Tee of Charlottesville, a program that seeks to educate children about golf and leadership.
McIntire Botanical Garden, a non-profit group, is advocating creation of a botanical garden in the east end of the park in areas that have been home to the municipal golf course.
The Piedmont Family YMCA plans construction of a fitness and aquatic center in the western half of the Park. A group called the McIntire Park Preservation Committee formed to try to prevent this construction, or at least to ensure that the construction does not eliminate two softball fields at the park.
The project is currently on hold pending the Virginia Supreme Court's resolution of a lawsuit filed against Charlottesville claiming that it broke Virginia's procurement laws by not allowing private companies to submit a request for proposals to operate an aquatic facility on city-owned land.   The court is expected to hear the case in the spring of 2012.
The construction of the U.S. Route 250 bypass ran through the park, with one section of the old park becoming what is now Greenleaf Park. Another former section, at the southeast end of McIntire Road near the rescue squad, initially became tennis courts and is now the Charlottesville Skateboard Park.
Eastern side master plan
The city is undertaking a master planning process for the eastern side of the park, a process that began in the fall of 2011 with three public meetings. More public meetings have been held in 2012. The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board held a public hearing in March 2012.  That will be followed with a public hearing before the Planning Commission and the City Council.
