Pave Pedestrian Access Liability

I have a Paved Pedestrian Access on my property to a county green space. The county is now developing this green space into a park. I am concerned about the increase of foot traffic, vandalism and liability of someone being hurt on my property. The other three entrances into the developing park are owned by the county. Are my liabilities increased or is the County liable?
