Better Naito Loading Zones

Safe & predictable loading and unloading of freight is one of the key goals of Better Naito. All Better Naito partners will make a concerted effort to limit loading/unloading impacts on other users of the multi-use path, especially during heavy travel times.

We ask for the public's understanding that at times larger trucks will need to make use of the space. The summer event season is a busy time at Waterfront Park. This is a good thing. We ask for everyone’s patience during Better Naito.
