Houston Park, Rueben Ingold Park, Stocker Corridor Trail Don Wanlass By early March, Dawn Vincent will be able to walk effortlessly from her home to nearby Rueben Ingold Park with access to the hiking trail along Stocker Street, Norman O. Houston and Kenneth Hahn parks – without a lot of traffic hassles.She can hardly wait.“I can’t believe it’s not opening until March,” said the View Park resident with excited anticipation. “It’s really great to see that state and local resources are focused on our community, giving us more park improvements, and accessibility to the state park and making that more available to us.”As city planners nationwide are looking for ways to respond to the shift toward increased urban living — with information technology, climate and mobility being key factors — the opening of the Stocker Corridor Trail head is a notable investment in the View Park, Windsor Hills and Baldwin Hills communities where residents for years have been clamoring for better connectivity and walkability to the area’s parks and recreation facilities.
