Pine Valley residents can access the entrance to Halyburton Park on 17th Street without getting in their vehicles by taking the sidewalk on John D. Barry Drive to the Cross-City Trail along 17th Street, or by entering from the trail on George Anderson Drive, city spokeswoman Malissa Talbert said.
The city has an easement along the back side of the park adjacent to the neighborhood and considered making this a pedestrian access to the park for residents, Talbert said.
“However, during public meetings held in the design phase of the project, residents were vocal in their opposition to this access point. They overwhelmingly preferred a secure perimeter along the back of the park,” she said.
