My back porch fronts our local spur of the major bicycle trail .5 miles away.
The kids use the spur trail a lot for bicycling, folks walk and scooters are a-plenty.
My wife and I so enjoy sitting and watching the kids playing, riding their bikes up and back and all around.
When we moved into our neighborhood 8 years ago, there were hardly any kids. Now they are all over the place. Must be the water.
I love having a "mixed-age" neighborhood where you have so much variety and activities.
