POST does a great job of supplementing our public parks. I hope that they can look at connecting our existing neighborhoods to park lands. Most of the current POST land is so remote that people have to drive their cars to access it. Putting trailheads closer to neighborhoods will allow people to bike or even walk to there instead of driving.
