Walkways are highlights of Beacon Hill Park

Re: Beacon Hill’s roads get the boot (News, Oct. 19)

I enjoy Beacon Hill Park on a daily basis both as a scenic drive through the park on my way home from town and on my daily walks.

I applaud the city’s plans to remove vehicles cutting through the park to enhance greenspace and other recreational activities.   I can easily give up the roads through the park and use the many other streets outside the park. I see the plan still allows vehicle access and parking for park users.

The current roads closed to vehicles like the one over the stone bridge is so lovely to walk or cycle. I can’t wait for more of these walkways in Beacon Hill Park.
