Desire Lines

We photographed this scene recently in Błonia, a 48-hectare meadow in central Kraków. It was our first time passing by Błonia & we thought these looked like textbook examples (well preserved ones at that) of desire lines. 

desire line: an unplanned route or path (such as one worn into a grassy surface by repeated foot traffic) that is used by pedestrians in preference to or in the absence of a designated alternative (such as a paved pathway)
