Say hello to the "Crosstown Park2Park Bikeway"!
The City Council's approval of the Kelley Creek Protection Project (aka Putnam Park Extension) got us thinking about how Petalumans of all ages, incomes, abilities and zip codes can access this beautiful new park.
So we took a bike ride... and found that there is already an unbroken route connecting the Red Barn all the way to the new sports fields east of the airport. Along the way, we passed nearly a dozen parks, including Walnut Park, the new River Park, the Skate Park and Swim Center, McDowell School Park and Murphy Little League Fields, the E. Washington Creek Trail. It will need some safety improvements, but looks very affordable.
This Crosstown Park2Park Bikeway will be a big step for the City in meeting our public health and safety, equity, and climate goals.
Let's do it!
