Sharing the Prospect Park Drives
For Brooklynites, Prospect Park is a communal resource. It isn't just the borough's backyard; it's the best place to bike, jog, walk your dog and set your kids free -- except for one factor. Cars are permitted to speed through its 3.35 mile loop drive. With that mix, Brooklyn's backyard is downright chaotic.
The Prospect Park Road Sharing Task Force was established to calm the chaos, and they've come up with a succinct solution. The current configuration leaves bicyclists and pedestrians to share scraps of the road. The Task Force's new proposal will put people first.
On February 28th, the Task Force will present their recommendations to park users. At the meeting, T.A. will be standing up for a Prospect Park that prioritizes safe bicycling and walking (jogging, too). We need all Brooklynites who love the loop drive to join us.
