Re: “The Dartmouth Common is a dangerous, underused park.

I've been living on my "flower street" for nearly two years now and frequent the Dartmouth Common throughout the year. I spend good many of my summer days in the park with a blanket and a book, and although the traffic through there is not comparable to the Halifax Common, there is a steady stream of people coming through during the summer months.
There seems always to be someone with their dog, people sun bathing, smoking, or just cutting through. And it is a main thorough-fair for cyclists most of the year. Even in the winter, people walk their dogs and use it as cut through. Not to mention that the big hill after some snow is a known and utilized sledding location.
I would have to disagree with your portrait of the park being as dangerous and deserted, although I never cut through after dark either. The Dartmouth Common is one of the many wonderful things this area of Dartmouth has to offer and although it could certainly it could use more traffic, but I don't think a retail venue of some sort is the answer. Improved accessibility from the surrounding streets would be good start. Improved access to parking surrounding the park maybe. But not booze (as if that would ever happen here anyway).
