The stretch of Woodland Avenue that runs by Hartley Park makes Hartley Nature Center's executive director Tom O'Rourke think back to the old video game Frogger.

The idea was to help the frog cross the road and navigate other tricky hazards unscathed. It might have made for an interesting video game, but in the end, it proved to an "insurmountable" obstacle in the Nature Center's plans to expand across the avenue onto some donated property.
