The months this was closed was blissful riding! I saw so many people - singletons, groups, families - out walking, running and walking. We need more car-free zones like this. There are plenty of roads to drive around this area.

It would be safer for the soft and vulnerable walker, runners and bikers, and cars have plenty of ways to get where they are going without this.

Vilas Park Drive has been my go-to walk destination - and sanity preservation - during Covid. Definitely am able to relax and enjoy the space more without the vehicle traffic.

This roads serves pedestrians and bicyclists who have few lakeside areas to use in this immediate neighborhood. Car drivers have the whole rest of the city - let people-powered transport have this road please.

Over the summer, the restrictions on motor vehicles made the park far more enjoyable. We have walked or biked almost every day in the park, and enjoyed seeing our neighbors doing the same. It has made an enormous difference to our enjoyment of the park, and the view across the lake,, and we have loved seeing families enjoying the space in a way that we haven’t seen in the 30 years we have lived here. We hope the city will maintain the restrictions on motor vehicles., it has made a huge difference to the character of the park.

Too many cars come flying down the hill to the very busy area at Vilas Dr and Edgewood drive.

Cars have multiple options throughout the city, which don't need to include a shortcut through a park. With that said, I don't feel safe at peak commute times in this area, on my bike, which is my transportation. I rely on having the safe connection to the Edgewood pleasure drive which links to safe streets into the near west side - it's my bicyle link from downtown.
