The Wallingford neighborhood greenway is complete, and there will be a two-block community street party to mark the opening Saturday starting at 4 p.m.
Join us as we celebrate the opening of Seattle’s first neighborhood Greenway! We will be closing 44th (from Bagley to Sunnyside) to car traffic and opening the space for a neighborhood party. Activities will include chalk art, games, walks and rides along the Greenway, bike powered smoothies and much more. This Celebration will be similar to Seattle’s “August Night Out” event with a focus on spending time outside celebrating public space. Bring your family, friends, food and games to the event as we celebrate this new addition to Wallingford.
The 44th/43rd Street neighborhood greenway is the first such project to come from the city’s recent citizen-led neighborhood greenway movement. It was paid for by the Neighborhood Project Fund, under the leadership of Cathy Tuttle and Wallingford Neighborhood Greenways. For more details on the project, see our previous post.
But that’s not all! There will also be a Kidical Mass ride from Green Lake to the party. Also, the two words family bikers have been waiting to return: Gelato Bike.
Madi of FamilyRide is leading this Kidical Mass from Green Lake to the Greenway Party this Saturday, June 16th. Depart NE Green Lake, on the grass around the playground at the Green Lake Community Center, and we’ll follow this route.
Meet at 4pm, ride at 4:15pm, arrive for Ribbon Cutting, Kid Parade, road chalk, hot dogs, bike blenders, and GELATO from D’Ambrosio Gelato in Ballard and Cap Hill! Marco and Enzo, the family gelato team, make the bestest, most authenticest, and most generousest gelato in town.
