Tonight: Give DOT Your Ideas for a Safer Park Circle

park_circle.jpgWhat would you change?

DOT's pedestrian projects group will present tonight at a public workshop about Park Circle, the roundabout at the southern tip of Prospect Park. Sponsored by Community Boards 7, 12, and 14, this is a preliminary meeting to define problems and collect ideas before improvements are designed. Given the vortex of auto traffic swirling so close to the park and the Parade Grounds, the emphasis is on safety. The proximity of the Kensington Stables also makes for an unusual modal angle: In addition to walking and biking, horse circulation will factor into the discussion.

A DOT flyer shows recent pedestrian projects at the Bronx County Courthouse, Grand Army Plaza, and Madison Square as inspiration for what could take shape at Park Circle.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at 312 Coney Island Avenue, where the avenue meets Park Circle.
