River Road Safety

On this beautiful spring day the parkway in Longfellow was a perfect place to walk, run or ride a bike. The road has been turned into a one-way (heading south) for cars so that walkers and bikers can spread out and keep a safe distance from others. It is so important to get some exercise during these stay at home days.
