Remember: The Parkway: The Way It Was…

The Parkway: The Way It Was…

I have  received real criticism from folks worried that the parks they have come to love would be altered in ways that would render them inaccessible.  I understand the sentiment.  I do not seek to make such a thing a reality.

What I am after is the opportunity to restore the vital ecosystems that have gone endangered over the last thirty years in Allentown’s parks. 

I too feel the sting at Cedar Beach with the road cutting through the once great open lawn.  I understand and see the value in such a thing, don’t get me wrong.

However, the serious environmental issues in our parks need solving and as it turns out, a while back, things were a lot different.

As far as keeping parks the way they were, I am going to leave you today with a picture sent to me in an envelope anonymously through the mail.  It is undated, but based on the text and the attire of the person on the bridge, this one goes waaaaay back.

This is the area that I described in a recent post as needing to be allowed to properly grow!  At what point did they start taking it out?  Things are so much different now.  That doesn’t even look like the Parkway, it looks much closer to how I imagine it should.   WOW.
