Langdon Street Cambridge, Massachusetts
For a number of years the Langdon Sq park has been neglected. Recently trucks had been driving on the park near Rutland and Langdon St. There had been numerous complaints. I was horrified to find that DPW supposedly resolved this issue by demolishing a third of the park to accommodate easier traffic flow. This small island park is almost 150 years old and had remained virtually unchanged for 60-70 years. Instead of dealing with the large vehicle problem on the park DPW choose to reduce the size of the park. This has now created another set of problems with speeding around the island park, unsafe conditions to sit and access the island park, and the historic character and safe use of the park has been eliminated. Why is the City of Cambridge thinking! This is unacceptable. Please restore the park to original condition and beauty and find another reasonable solution.
