Georgetown South Park Trail

The Georgetown South Park Trail will be a safe walking and biking route connecting people with local businesses, services, and destinations on both sides of our river.

Georgetown and South Park neighborhoods lay side-by-side, connected by the Duwamish River, common history, shared needs and environmental concerns.  For more than 20 years, people living and working in both communities have highlighted the need for a trail route joining these neighborhoods -- a safe and comfortable route for people of all ages and physical abilities, walking, riding, and rolling.

In 2017 community and business stakeholder groups successfully worked with Seattle City Council to secure funding for planning, public outreach and partial design for the “Georgetown to South Park Trail”.  In 2018, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDoT) began studying the feasibility of various routes. They will collect public feedback later this year, and will have a recommended design by Fall 2019.

Successful streets and public spaces are informed by community priorities. To ensure the investments being made on the “Georgetown to South Park Trail” meet the community’s needs, Duwamish Valley Safe Streets is building awareness about this design process, and ensuring a diversity of community voices are providing input into the trail’s design.  Our goal is to arrive at a community-supported design for the Georgetown to South Park Trail that works well for everyone who walks, bikes, uses transit, drives, shops, plays, studies, owns a business, and works in and between these two neighborhoods.
