    Well, if it wasn't the hidden gem before, I hope it is after they finish the bridge reconstruction. I would prefer that no one came after the bridge opens.

    Fat Chance. This place will be swarming with people wanting to cross that bridge either walking or in bicycles. I don't think there is a bike rental place anywhere near the park. My kids can't wait. They have their bike's ready already.

      That's what we need when the bridge opens. A bike rental place. I can go with my girl on one of those bicycles built for two. Are you guys in the development association listening to us?

    2. If you read this blog, you will see that there as been some interest in the area for a bicycle rental/service/sales store adjacent to the park. It turns out that there are now three companies expressing interest in such a project. I doubt that they will all come to the neighborhood. After all, one would be enough for starters.

    I look forward to the bridge opening and the happy bicyclists crossing the bridge. I hope there isn't a traffic jam at the middle of the bridge.
