  1. Trent. This area seems very peaceful. I like the idea that some accommodations were made for people with limited mobility. However, I’m curious as to whether the incline on the bridge and at the entrance are safe enough. I see that solar energy is used for the emergency call box and that some areas are fenced in to keep individuals from falling into the water. I do worry about small children running free next to the bushes and too close to the river, or someone being unexpectantly pushed in the water. Lastly, I think this place provides a great view for the people living in the high-rise apartments.
