Desire lines. If urban designers are smart, they will pay attention to what their residents want and design for that. This @provo.parks river trail “exit” to Riverside Plaza (Maceys, Target, Ace Hardware, etc.”) shows that people would like easier access to those businesses. And we hope @provo.parks will take this into consideration in its updates to the Provo River Trail.
Donâ€™t be tempted to make a connection at this location shown in the photo. It appears those using this â€œtrailâ€ exit are doing so to cross a two-way street illegally. Perhaps a fence separating the two facilities would be in order to improve safety.
