Drawing a park

Posted by tule00 on 31 July 2017 in English (English)

I think many of you already know about my most detailed city, Igwepir. So I've noticed that there are not enough parks in the city, and I thought this was a nice place for a large park.

My question is, does it look good that way, and should I expand it to the whole area marked green (the part of the trunk road (marked red) would be a tunnel, and the parallel tertiary road will probably be deleted or turned into a small street)? I'm not sure if the park would be too big that way.

You call THAT large?! ;)

On a more serious note: Expanding the park is a good idea, people from Vagheen Nort would use it more often, with the current state the trunk road is a barrier for pedestrians so they have a hard time getting there. Don't delete the tetriary road though, maybe downgrade it to a pedestrian/cyclist/public transport/emergency vehicle road with a restrictive speed limit? It's a good place for a bus stop or something like that to service the park. Also, If the park is expanded it gives you more room for some park features, I would definitely see some kind of a park railway here (but on the other hand I'm a public transport nerd and I'd put them in every park :P ).

What about a pedestrian bridge over the trunk road? How about a pedestrian tunnel? What is the crime rate like in the area? A pedestrian tunnel could be dicey if in a high crime area.

Well, it wouldn't be too large for a big city (with over 1 000 000 inhabitants), but Igwepir is supposed to have 350 000 at most.

Fair point. I have just now noticed that I only have 1 tiny park in north Vagheen.

That's a good idea too!

@No Way I think that one bridge/tunnel wouldn't be enough for the whole park. Although it definitely would be a much cheaper solution.

I'm not sure about the crime, but Reeland in general is supposed to have a low average crime rate.
