No pedestrian crossing on Rubidge between Charlotte and McDonnel. A crossing at Brock or Hunter would be beneficial.

report

After Mcdonnel, until at least Edinburgh, there are no sloped sidewalks and the drop to the road is very steep, making it inaccessible to cross the street with a stroller, if you are a wheelchair user etc.

report

Underused park. Home for a community garden?

report

Lots of area around community garden... could expand garden significantly.

report

This is a very enjoyable walk, but the sidewalk ends halfway up Golfview. The remainder of the path, all the way to Whitefield Drive, needs to be on the road. OK for adults, but despite local traffic only, can be dangerous with kids (especially on bikes).

report

A pedestrian crossing light would immensely benefit community, allowing better use of green area on both sides of Goodfellow.

report

Area is suitable for winter skating rink, either besides the community garden or inside the playground nearby.

report

A few simple footbridges over the creek, on the path between Silverdale Road and McMann Park, as well as over customarily flooded areas would create a large walkable corridor and integrate the neighbourhoods.

report

Area has but a few paths... could be further developed with simple sports fields which would not be excessively costly to implement and remove in case Parkway is extended.

report

Playground could use some improvements.

report

Community Garden started a few years ago an excellent initiative. Growing pains are bearable.

Traffic. Hunter should be much slower (as should all downtown streets.) Aylmer is perfect for biking - wide and smooth - but hunter and aylmer the intersection narrows and it gets really scary. I've nearly been left-turned into multiple times in the last year!!
