Replanning land use to include accessible recreation areas for all will require coordination of park and transportation policies and a change in American life style. Public transit systems have been geared to getting commuters to and from their jobs and tend to stop functioning at times when recreation demands could be made on them. Walk-to parks are of great importance to inner city residents because regional parks have been designed to serve the mobile middle and upper classes. Federal and state policies can make regional parks available to urban dwellers with preferential funding, setting top priority on projects with transportation resources. /DCK/
