Expand Trails, Parks and Open Spaces

My favorite things about Eagle Mountain are the parks and trails. They encourage individuals and families to get outside and that can foster a sense of community as neighbors meet each other. I currently have an unfenced yard with a walking trail and green space directly behind my house. I was concerned about the lack of privacy this would give me but instead I have enjoyed visiting with my neighbors as they walk by. I have seen families that come to use the green space be joined by others and create an impromptu neighborhood activity. With the trend towards ever decreasing lot sizes, this extra recreation space becomes increasingly important. I also enjoy the parks that are all around the city and the walking trails that connect them to the neighborhoods. I would support the expansion of these amenities as the city grows.
