The parklands are such beautiful places to have family gatherings, small and large events. Usually, people always want to unload their vehicles at the spot where they are gathering; or in the case of events, trucks (1 or 3 tonners only) need to carry heavy loads to the sites where they are setting up.
A wider pathway can be utilised for 2 things. One to make it safer for pedestrians and cyclist to co-habit at all times and secondly take the width of a vehicles tyres. Having a wider pathway can make it clear to those setting up that their vehicles should only stay on the path to unload/load thus keeping the lawns pristine.
It prevents vehicles from having to drive on the lawns or churn up the lawn alongside of the narrow pathway.
