Should the Kessler Park steps be restored?

A shaded stone stairway built in the early 1920s connects pedestrians from Kessler Parkway to Canterbury Court. But the steps have been hidden by overgrowth and mostly out of use since the ’60s of ’70s.

Now neighbors are trying to raise money and support to reopen the steps, an original part of Kessler Park, which they say are a convenient way to traverse the neighborhood.

We first wrote about the steps in the November Advocate. Homeowners with property adjacent to the steps have opposed efforts to reopen the steps. But the City Attorney found that individual homeowners don’t own the steps. They’re on city property.

Neighbors recently created a website with tons of information about the steps and their fight to reopen them. Anyone can help or donate.
