Dangerous Gate

Please click on photos to supersize

Bike/pedestrian path between Spruce Street and Munsel Creek County Park.

Recommendation: Moving the gate to the end of the sidewalk as shown (yellow gate) above would allow easier access for wheels chairs, bicycles and pedestrians via the paved path and eliminate the need to go around it on the narrow funky gravel path.

This gate is not in compliance with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The goal of the ADA is to make sure that no qualified person with any kind of disability is turned down for a job or promotion, or refused entry to a public-access area.
