The City has started the planning process for what features should go in Braemar Park, already home to Braemar Golf Course, Braemar Arena, Braemar Field and Courtney Fields. Park elements such as picnic shelters, playgrounds, fields, courts, walking trails and mountain bike and Nordic skiing trails could go in the remaining areas of the 500-acre park to create opportunities for year-round use. In addition, safe connections to the surrounding neighborhoods and environmental restoration should be part of the plan.

How should the City improve access to the park and connect it with the surrounding neighborhoods?

A sidewalk/bike lane on McCauley Trail would help safely connect the Indian Hills and Indian Trails neighborhoods to Braemar. I see people walking and biking on McCauley Trail all the time and worry that someone is going to get hit by a car.

Keep building bike trails around the city to make biking safe and attractive.

Bridges or safe crossing intersections over or on high traffic areas would make bikers feel safer.

The trail system isn't even connected to itself let alone the surrounding neighborhoods. Connect the current trails to each other. Then build connections to the 78th Street and Dewey Hill / Gleason Road sidewalks. Run a path down the west side of Gleason so the east hill portion can be accessed without either crossing in the middle of the block or walking in the street.

The city should make it a priority to provide safe walking and biking access to all parks. Particularly in good weather months, they will get more week day use as a result.

Depends where you're coming from I guess. I live just east of Gleason and south of Dewey Hill. We have great access to the hiking trails on the East Ridge and the main entrance to Braemar. I suppose signage could be added about trail access or info put on the website.
