Seattle Parks and Recreation will begin invasive plant removal along the Burke Gilman Trail on Monday, February 1, 2010. The work will take place between Meridian Ave. N and Latona Ave. NE on the north end of Lake Union.
The Trail will remain open; however, Parks anticipates it may be narrow in places while the invasive plant removal is taking place.
In 2009, Seattle Parks and the Seattle Parks Foundation worked with the public to complete the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop Master Plan. This improvement project is the part of the implementation of this plan.
The purpose of the loop is to enable citizens and visitors to enjoy the character and history of the neighborhoods that surround Lake Union, and to enjoy a unique recreational experience. The loop serves walkers, runners and cyclists, improving the connection between lakefront neighborhoods, downtown, the University of Washington and the Burke Gilman trail.
