Pavement parking and the malaise of walking through the park

Illegal parking in pedestrian park alleys narrows down the walking space that remains for pedestrians.


Even if we might be tempted to associate strolling or walking through a park with a leisure activity that invites us to admire the surrounding nature, walking through the park may become in certain sections an unpleasant, overstimulating activity.

The relaxing function parks should have is challenged by the intrusion of vehicles parked on pedestrian alleys, thereby forcing the pedestrians to find alternative routes, such as by walking down the road travelled by cars or on the narrow tree lane that separates the side walk from grass areas.
