THE BRONX - Norwood pedestrians can feel more secure entering Williamsbridge Oval Park with the completion of a number of new safety improvements.

Friends of Williamsbridge Oval are commending the city’s Department of Transportation for painting crosswalks at all of the park's entrances, posting new signage, installing angled parking and speed bumps, and reducing the speed limit to 20 mph.

Members say that the changes have given pedestrians safe accessibility to the park for the first time in years.

The group’s next mission is to get sidewalks near the park at Reservoir Place.
