At several points along the Arroyo Seco Bikeway there are stairways leading from the bike path to a park, but blocked with a solid fence.

If one were to remove these fences, convenient access would be granted to pedestrians between the parks and the riverbed.  In one case, local river goers have taken this action upon themselves and cut the fence above one of the staircases.

More access points can be made be simply removing the remaining fences.  By increasing the quantity of access points, NELA can unite its largest area of green space with its only alternative transit corridor.
