Washington Park Arboretum Loop Trail Grand Opening

Community invited to come celebrate and “Loop the Loop”

Seattle Parks and Recreation, University of Washington and the Arboretum Foundation invite the community to the grand opening celebration of the Washington Park Arboretum Loop Trail on Sunday, April 8, 2018 from noon to 3 p.m.

The day will be filled with festivities along the path, including music, free snacks, food trucks, a talk by outdoors writer Craig Romano and an opportunity to explore the new multi-use trail. The official opening remarks and “vine-cutting” ceremony takes place at 1 p.m. at the Birch Lot off Lake Washington Blvd. E.

The new multi-use trail daylights the creek, provides greater access to the wetlands and plant collections, and supports education, recreation and conservation efforts at the Washington Park Arboretum.  Click here to read more about the completion of the trail.
