Strategies include a multi-use path to 12 South:
Strategy: Maintain a system of connected pedestrian and bicycle pathways between retail and residential areas to encourage accessibility by means other than the automobile.
Strategy: Create a green-belt loop around Green Hills incorporating pedestrian and bicycle routes between neighborhoods and commercial areas, while offering safe recreational options.

Sue, We are working on a design (with the Nashville Civic Design Center) for the how the entrance from Belmont Park Terrace (by the playground) could be made safer. We hope to have it ready to show off at the Festival! Slowing down cars and adding a crosswalk are important needs at that corner.
