Turn Out Tonight for a Ped-Friendly Prospect Park

Last week, Hawthorne Street showed us the pedestrian nightmare that is the southeast entrance to Prospect Park at the corner of Ocean and Parkside. Tonight, livable streets advocates can help take the fear out of walking to the park and put pedestrians atop the hierarchy at this critical intersection. The Hawthorne Street bloggers have the details:

Some help may be on the way for the Ocean & Parkside intersection
at Prospect Park: park reps have informed us that the entrance will be
redesigned as part of a massive Park development project due to begin
next year.

Of course, how it will be redesigned remains to be seen. We’d urge
anyone and everyone concerned about the Park entrance to attend the
upcoming public meeting: Monday, May 19, 6:30 p.m. at Wollman Rink.

The meeting will also address parking lots and roads within the southeast section of the park, an excellent chance to call for designs that limit the use of cars. The nearest subway station is Parkside Avenue on the Q.
