Sometimes a idea is so damn good that many people come up with it almost at the same time. Taking all the red zone land next to the Avon and turning it into a park is one such idea. Thankfully, our friends in the Avon River Park group have already put the idea into works. Nevertheless, its a brilliant idea and would make an awesome addition to the cycle network east of the square.
Matthew Scott of St Martins takes the idea a little further and dreams of "leaving work early on a balmy summer evening to head out along the Avon River park to the south shore spit where I'll grab a ice cream at my favourite cafe and enjoy the smell of the see before heading back into town and then to home"
