Though several planned neighborhood greenways have been delayed, including projects in Ballard and West Seattle, one promising neighborhood greenway is almost complete in Northeast Seattle. Neighbors, supporters and Seattle Children’s will celebrate the grand opening of the route October 26 with a Halloween-themed Friday morning bike ride.
The route is funded by Seattle Children’s at part of their $4 million Liveable Streets Initiative.
