Safe Routes to Parks Plan Finalized

Monday, October 8, 2018

The Safe Routes to Parks Plan identifies barriers to safe access to six of the city's most heavily used parks and proposes solutions to these issues.

The six parks analyzed as part of the plan are Homestead, Glenwood, John White, Crandall, Lynn, and MVSD. Plan development included an analysis of crime data, crash data, and vacant properties around each school, as well as input from park users and community residents. Summer camp youth and partnering organizations participated in site visits and walk audits of the parks to identify key issues. The walk audits were led by staff from the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, who provided funding and technical assistance to complete the plan.
