05 – Where will users park?
Many residents of Sudbury and nearby towns would travel to the trail by bicycle. Parking for others has been addressed in the Engineering and Environmental Assessment and would be further addressed in the design phases. Existing parking areas that could serve the rail trail include those at recreation areas, conservation areas and schools. Davis Field and Parmenter (Ti-Sales) Field abut the rail bed. Even though Featherland Park abuts the rail trail, parking there is very limited due to the heavy use of the parking areas for sports. It may be possible to arrange for parking at the Nixon school, especially on weekends. Also, some of the businesses near Route 20 might welcome parking by rail trail users.
