I used to take my children to Osage, and now I take my grandchildren; it's a special place. I just wish there was a safe way to walk into the park. I often walk to the park from the Ironhorse to El Capitan and enter at the parking lot near the tennis courts. Not only does the sidewalk end, but a fence forces me onto the driveway with the cars. I never know where to walk safely since the vehicles often enter through the exit side instead of driving around the circle (when there is no sidewalk, pedestrians are supposed to walk facing traffic). I'd love that sidewalk to continue behind the fence, but couldn't there at least be a painted walkway?
