I would like to thank the members of the Niagara Heritage Partnership for their
proposal calling for "removal of the four lanes of the Robert Moses Parkway along the
top of the gorge from Schoellkopf Museum to Lewiston and the restoration of parkland and
native flora that once grew there."
It is so encouraging to know that there are inspired people who are willing to work
selflessly on behalf of a great river that can't speak for itself.
In place of the parkway, imagine piles of scenic trails winding through a beautiful,
natural landscape. Visitors could spend days exploring, hiking, bicycling, bird watching,
taking guided history tours and much more. In winter there could be a spectacular
cross-country ski trail attracting people from all over the country.
Perhaps a world-class park should be considered as a focal point for our newly proposed
downtown area, as an alternative native to having a gambling casino.
