What, bridge work?
That previous surface got slick when wet. Ever see kids go (purposely) skating down it? It was a liability
The October festival San Marco Bridge looking toward Pantheon. Um don't even know what to say on this
Indeed. They could also do with resurfacing that bridge as well. I’ve seen a kids slip and side down across and partway up the other hill because the bridge is slick when wet.It’s quite a downhill slope there on the Oktoberfest side of the bridge.
The steep hills in the wolf area also need resurface imo.
Pea gravel also has a much better as a pervious surface than pavement. When a place (BGW) tends to have as many impervious surfaces at it does, they need to have some massive SW4 offsets on property (hence why there's some additional expansion they would never make). Pea Gravel in some spots often helps some with that.That pea gravel is used in a lot of areas in the park and even though it does get slippery when wet it still provides a little traction depending on your footwear. It's also cooler than blacktop, which I'm glad Mr. Busch forbid to be used in the park when it was being built. Also if blacktop had been used then when it gets seal coated it becomes very slippery, way more so than the gravel does, when it gets wet and I bet there would be a lot more injuries if that had been used.
