We Need Some Trees Here!

I went out and walked the #WalkTheRock 5.5 mi walking trail yesterday. It was a bright sunny day and it was hot! This stretch of pathway along Eyster Blvd in Rockledge, shown in the picture above, sure could use some shade. Our walkability plan (Rockledge Walkability Plan, Post #1 – Why a Walkable Rockledge?) among other things would require shade trees along all of the streets in our populated areas. Looking at the picture above it’s not too hard to see why that’s a good idea, is it?

Then I eventually came to this wonderful spot with some trees next to the sidewalk near Kennedy MS. Wow, what a difference! There was a breeze that didn’t help too much in the blazing sun, but in the shade? Oh, yeah, it was probably only a few degrees cooler, but it felt like at least a 10 degree difference.
