Enter Prospect Park in Brooklyn at any time and you’ll find a mix of walkers, runners and cyclists. Right now, the loop is a bit crowded for pedestrians and cyclists as the majority of the road is given to cars – but this is about to change.
The Prospect Park Road Sharing Task Force has proposed that the lanes for pedestrians and cyclists are expanded, and cars are limited to one lane. Additionally, cops will be employed to ticket rule breakers. As the park has gotten more crowded, the 3.35 mile loop that so many love have gotten difficult to navigate, which has even resulted in some injuries of pedestrians. However, the new proposal is expected to minimize risk and make it more enjoyable for all park goers.
The Task Force is expected to present their proposal at tonight’s public meeting, which will be held at 6 p.m. in the Picnic House at Prospect Park.
Do you think the proposed changes are a good thing? Let us know in the comments!
