The Greenway should be a park and seaside experience for both people walking and cycling, similar in design and intent throughout the 28 km of Greenway.
This is an important moment for cycling in parks in the City. Park Board staff have been saying that Park Board wants cycling to, not through parks. This could really affect the great recreational, transportation and environmental synergies that cycling and parks share.
Commissioners, I want to be able to cycle in the park with my four year old son who is still learning to ride, and not have to worry about being struck by a moving vehicle!
The Seaside Greenway Kits Beach area bike routing on the narrow shared path by the sea as well as on the roads by the parks becomes congested and is not enjoyable year round. Improvements need to be made.
Although the scope of this project currently doesn’t include east of Maple Street, we encourage Park Board to work with Engineering staff to take this opportunity to look for a routing along the north side of Ogden Ave (to avoid legal issues with adjacent Hadden Park) and to connect in a safe way to the path through Vanier Park.

Alexander Dove commented on Ironworkers Memorial Bridge Access 2014-12-11 13:14:06 -0800Widening the sidewalks on the bridge is absolutely necessary, but also simply the first step in making the bridge and access TO the bridge better and safer. IMO cycling on sidewalks is not a sustainable way to design for bicycle access to the bridge. Bike and foot traffic should be separated to eliminate conflict.
