Safe Routes to Parks Audit: Mellon + Westinghouse Park

Homewood-Brushton YMCA

As part of our Safe Routes to Parks grant, we’re performing bike audits to evaluate the safety of routes to CitiParks within 3 miles of Homewood. As we expand the Healthy Ride footprint, we like to think about bikeable access to city resources, and CitiParks are a HUGE resource. These bike audits help us get an understanding of how people perceive the safety of biking to parks in their area. Your feedback is hugely important.
