How wide are the new paths/trails, what will be the surface and how will they be maintained?

The concrete paths on the perimeter of the park are 7.5 feet wide to match existing sidewalks. 

The main paved trails are 8 feet wide, the secondary paved trails 5 feet wide, and the crushed granite trails 4 feet wide. 

The concrete paths and paved trails were designed to accommodate city maintenance and snow plowing equipment. Asphalt was chosen for the interior park paths because of varying grades within the park and the ease of maintenance.
