Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting two public meetings to invite ideas for park trails. Both meetings will take place from 7 – 8 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Ave. S, Seattle 98118
- Thursday, April 21, 2011 at Meadowbrook Community Center,10517 35th Ave NE, Seattle 98125
These meetings are an opportunity for trail enthusiasts to provide input and ideas on how to preserve and develop Seattle Parks and Recreation soft surface walking and hiking paths. Trails and related activities rank very high on the list of activities that Seattlites enjoy, and these meetings will provide essential direction in how Parks protects and improves these assets.
“Trails are the entry way for the public to enjoy our urban forests,”, said Mark Mead, Seattle Parks Senior Urban Forester. “While the user groups vary greatly from joggers to bird watchers to folks getting from one side of the neighborhood to the next, this process will allow us to connect better with them on a common thread: safe and accessible trails.”
Parks is using its trails inventory to not only plan work for the next five years and beyond, but is taking this opportunity to work with stakeholders, citizens, and community organizations to develop partnerships and a vision for our trail system.
