This project aims to improve a 44-acre urban forest into an amenity that benefits all users, provides cross-greenbelt pedestrian connections, and creates opportunities for nature-immersion. Key components of the plan are pedestrian trails and single track bike trails. The bike trail component is a pilot project which will be evaluated to determine if this type of bike trail can be compatible with Seattle Park’s natural areas. Park development will include extensive habitat restoration. J+S provided design and public engagement facilitation for this controversial plan.
