Other small towns just like Alpine have created a network of local parks connected by a system of walkways, bike paths, and trails.
The benefits are far-reaching and community-wide: easier access for all, increased safety, revitalization of existing facilities, less environmental impact, increased physical activity, connection to other resources such as schools, public transportation, libraries, community centers, local businesses, and more!
An overwhelming, all-in-one, regional sports complex park will not only block access to Wright’s Field Preserve, but will damage the open space and passive recreation destination due to fragmentation, encroachment, and overflow use from the park.
Much research shows the value of non-consumptive, non-invasive outdoor recreation for kids and adults, for physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. This location is irreplaceable and offers a unique natural recreational opportunity that is worth protecting.
This isn't just another work project for the Alpine community; it will irreversably affect where we live. That matters and it's personal.
