When the LRT is built, I have an idea -- Let's remove the north fence from Gore Park! Make it more people-accessible!

The Gore fence on King is not needed if we've got LRT and bike lanes, especially with a station between Hughson and James.

It greatly improves access to Gore Park, helps revitalize the area, especially if we have a dedicated protected cycle lane on King by then (a good shoo-in for a pedestrian-only International Village if that happened to keep LRT traffic-separated during an era where we convert Main to 2-way -- and the protected bike lanes should continue all the way to Gore Park).

With both cycle access and LRT access to Gore Park, the park will be far more vibrant (in addition to 10 years of condo booming, of course).

This could be part of the people-friendliness-improvements plan of the general area that includes improved Hughson pedestrian access to GO on Hunter.
