The Chandler Bikeway is an exciting new addition to traditional Burbank family values and recreation activities. What was formerly railroad tracks with functioning for eight in commuter cars running back and forth is now the cemented pedestrian and bicycle through way providing community residents with recreation opportunities. The former railroad area is now a two mile bike path.
If old time Burbank residents are amazed at the change in the area due to the construction of the bike path, new residents have taken to it with ease. From Clybourne Street to Mariposa along Chandler, residents can bike each way or walk according to bike path traffic rules. Wheelchairs are permitted on the bike path. The dry, dusty open track bed area has been replaced with an enjoyable community space full of green grass and happy exercisers in the Burbank Sunshine.
The park transparently enough runs along Chandler Boulevard. Since the railroad thruway already had extra straight space and on either side, the inset of a cement bike path with green grass space on either side still allows for a peaceful stroll or ride. No motorized vehicles will be permitted on the path. Bicycles on the Chandler bike path must meet California bicycle standards.
