Should the city make sure there is a park within a quarter mile of every home in Lawrence?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 13, 2006
“I think they need to make sure that there are enough sidewalks and there is better timing on the traffic lights at crosswalks to encourage people to walk more before they worry about building more parks.”
“I’ve got kids so I’m going to say yes. It would be fun to be able to walk there. My 5- and 7-year-old love the parks here.”
“Yes, absolutely. It’s good for student and families, and public parks promote a sense of community.”
“I think with urban sprawl it’s important to include community resources, but they need to make sure that they maintain the park system they already have and not just tear down the old ones while they build new ones.”
