In his announcement that the city is going to purchase 20 Rogers Street and expand the Crystal Lake public beachfront, Alderman Ken Parker asks for suggestions for the site.
If the entry headline didn't give it away already, my suggestion: a T stop at Crystal Lake. I'd make it a stop only during park hours.
I'll bet that Crystal Lake is not so close to the Newton Centre or Newton Highlands T stops that many people travel by T. Add a T stop right at the beach, and (more) people could reasonably use the T.
A T stop would increase the number of Newton residents with access to Crystal Lake, without adding to the traffic or parking in the neighborhood.
