hi, will this walkway go under the bridge and connect with the rail trail? That would be ideal if you could do that.

The trail is suppose to be for walking only, signs state no bike riding. But many do ride bikes, and skate board . Co urbanize needs to clarify with city and Rail Trail committee criteria of usage.

A cement pad with benches for people in wheelchairs and their friends/family. Also a wheelchair accessible swing would be great

A skatepark could definitely help the area the one in Haverhill at cashmen park is small and doesn’t have any ramps it would be nice to do something for the community with input from local riders.
