Not yet. There are a number of sources agitating for further restrictions on any human elements in
the parks and other natural areas. If the nature kooks had their way, only an elite few (including
them) would have access to these areas. Pretty soon, you'll be restricted to marked footpaths, you
won't be able to deviate and explore at all. If that sounds far-fetched, it's already happened in
some areas in Canada and England.
