The planners of Radburn, influenced by England’s Garden Cities, intended pedestrian walkways to be the main method of transportation. This is illustrated in this 1970 photograph showing the front of a home in Radburn facing one of the walkways. The vehicle access is in the ‘rear’ of the home, narrow cal-de-sacs which have had difficulties accommodating modern families who often own multiple cars.
