Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Photo Challenge: Path

via Photo Challenge: Path

So my first reaction to this, somewhat belated, challenge was the Arbutus Greenway. But the first photo I came across on my flickr photostream was this more recent one – of the path through the Arbutus Village Park. The path I use most often.

You will need yer wellies today

This was taken before Christmas, but it might as well be today. While major roads get salted and ploughed when it snows, and sidewalks are supposed to be shovelled by the property owners adjacent to them (but more often aren’t) paths get neglected.

Blacktop

This is what it looked like back in August – and I took this picture to illustrate another blog post about the use of blacktop for pedestrian/bike/non-vehicle paths.

Because I use this path all the time, I rarely think to take a picture of it.

I believe that we need more car free paths – indeed to illustrate the point I even curate a flickr group called Places Without Cars – though I have had to close it to any more pictures as so many people do not seem to understand why pedestrian only streets and plazas are worth documenting.

And I did actually take a picture of the path in question today: I have only now got round to posting it to Flickr

Intruder

The point being that the car parked there ought not to be in the park at all
