The American River Parkway is indeed a jewel and deserves to be protected and preserved. While the county has reduced their funding, a remedy should not fall solely on their shoulders. The cities of Sacramento, Ranch Cordova and the neighborhoods surrounding the parkway all have a stake in the parkway.
A special district or joint powers agreement is the way to secure adequate funding from the appropriate sources.
As one of the Park Rangers laid off due to budget cuts, I am happy seeing others recognize the problems affecting the parkway.
This is the sad outcome of bad local politics and a lack of funding.
The Sacramento metro area is unique in having the American River Parkway and its' recreational opportunities right in its' backyard. Where else do you have a natural resource like the ARP walking distance from the city center and surrounding neighborhoods.
It is very sad and disappointing to see it degrade to this point.
