Protect the Door Creek Oaks
The neighbors of Door Creek Park are committed to protecting the 100+ year old oak trees in the park, which could be negatively impacted by the construction, usage, and maintenance of the new ski path, as proposed by the City of Madison - Parks Department. Other proposed paths within the park do not put the old oak trees at risk and provide ample distance for recreation and allow start-to-finish usage from any entrance within the park. Therefore, the residents listed below support removal of the trail section behind Bluff Point Drive. At a minimum, we support a reroute that eliminates undue risk to the life of these trees and the addition of hedges/screening to protect the aesthetics and privacy of both the skiers and park neighbors.
