Letter: Close Delaware Park to vehicular traffic

Close Delaware Park to vehicular traffic

I love and frequent Delaware Park year-round. Sadly, though, the park has become a parking lot on weekends in the summer for the zoo. The zoo lot can no longer handle all the cars. Consequently, hundreds of cars are pulling up on the lawn around the ring. Along with this, all week long in the summer buses pull up and stand, engines idling, at the most narrow part of the ring, creating pollution and a dangerous situation. Vehicles back up into the ring where families are walking with their pets and their children.

Once again I renew my plea that the entire park be closed to vehicular traffic. Let’s return the park to the people. Satellite lots are needed for overflow parking. Hopefully this will be done before something tragic happens.
