Description

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.
