To the editor:
Over the last two decades, the City of Lawrence has built several attractive recreational paths in the community. Now it is time to link these separate paths to form an interconnected trail system, thereby multiplying their value. Also, trees need to be planted along the paths to provide shade for trail users and evergreens planted to screen eyesores. With a little more work, an outstanding trail network can be established that will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
People love walking, bicycling or jogging on recreational trails. Whether for exercise or just the sheer enjoyment of being outdoors, people of all walks of life enjoy recreational trails. The fact is people love trails and trails are good for the community.
