Join Seattle Parks and Recreation at Open House for the I-5 Colonnade Park Pump Track Project 

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR), in collaboration with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, is excited to announce plans for the development of a pump track at I-5 Colonnade Park. Please join us on Wednesday, April 10, at 5:30 p.m. at I-5 Colonnade Park, 1701 Lakeview Blvd E. The gathering area is located near the E. Blaine St. entrance off of Franklin Ave. E. This community-driven project aims to enhance the recreational offerings of the park and provide an inclusive experience for users of all ages and abilities. 

Prior to the information session, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance will be hosting a volunteer maintenance and clean-up work party from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Members of the Evergreen team will be available during this time to address any inquiries related to the pump track project. 

The pump track initiative aims to modernize the Tqalu Skills Zone section of the existing mountain bike park, introducing a new paved adaptable pump track and main pump track. These enhancements will cater to a wide range of users, offering an engaging and enjoyable experience for both beginners and seasoned riders. Funding for this project is provided by the Seattle Park District, King County Parks Capital and Open Space Grant, and Community Donations. 

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance on this exciting project,” said AP Diaz, Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “The introduction of the pump track aligns with our commitment to providing accessible and diverse recreational opportunities for the community.”
