Creating safe bikeways for everyone in New York (not just Manhattan) should be a priority for city government. All people young and old should be able to use bikes for safe transportation.My mother biked till age 87 in the Netherlands because of dedicated bikelanes.

I visit this park more than often. I jog here, walk my dog here, bird watch here and participate in other activities here at the Bronx River Parks. I appreciate how the parks have been restored and beautified and hope to see more positive changes happen in my neighborhood starting with these parks. The kids in the community need these parks as a personal and physical enrichment to their lives. I hope that bridging the gaps between the Bronx River Parks can one day allow a Races and Marathons such as a 5k, 10k or 13.1K for the community. It would be so fulfilling for my family, myself and the people in the community.
