A Vision for Como Park Paths
The Como Community Council on Sept. 17 approved a series of recommendations from its Pathways work group to make bicycle and pedestrian paths in Como Regional Park “more useful to more people more often.”
The recommendations include giving Saint Paul Parks and Recreation specific suggestions to improve the condition and function of paths; upgrade signs along paths; create maps, kiosks, interpretative displays and other “wayfinding” tools; and upgrade amenities along paths.
The recommendations will go the the city’s Como Regional Park Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Commission for their endorsement and inclusion in Parks construction plans.
Also on Sept. 17, the community council voted to support a proposal to convert Ayd Mill Road into a linear park, with two lanes of traffic (instead of the current four), and new bicycle and pedestrian paths.
