The access from West Shepard Ave., to Baldwin Drive requires passing through a gate. The state has put a lock on the gate at the request of the property owner. The road past the gate is state property. The property owner has a right of way. This means that park users have the right to cycle and walk the road; just respect the private property by staying on the road. The state is attempting to add this property to the park.
