Ballard’s 58th Street Greenway will open Saturday with Kidical Mass, street pianos and more

1243472_653709057980042_886752868_oBallard’s first neighborhood greenway is ready to roll on NW 58th Street. Spanning the entire width of Ballard from 6th Avenue NW to the Burke-Gilman Trail, the greenway includes a variety of improvements from safer crossings of busy streets to speed humps for slowing car traffic to stop signs for cross-traffic at intersections with other residential streets.

If you’re curious if the greenway is working, you need only ask this lemonade baron.

The neighborhood will celebrate the greenway Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and street party complete with a Kidical Mass ride.

Details from the event listing:

Celebrate the grand opening of the NW 58th Street Neighborhood Greenway. Come have fun and learn about changes to make the street safer and more comfortable to walk and bike along. Besides good conversation and fun neighbors, Kidical Mass will be hosting a ride to the event. We’ll also cut a ribbon to officially open the greenway, host a kids bike rodeo and pledge to walk, bike and ride transit a little more at the Undriver Licensing™ Station.

Join the Kidical Mass starting at the Ballard Library and arriving at the block party. Details here https://www.facebook.com/events/422164861237308/

Thanks to A-1 Piano we’ll have ‘street keyboards’ for kids to play on.

What’s a street piano you ask? Here’s one at a recent Phinney/Greenwood Summer Streets:


How cool is that?

    Good morning. Please explain the concept of Green ways in detail. Also is there a comprehensive map of the greenways in the Seattle area?

    1. Hi Rodney,
      The best resource to answer your questions is probably this site: http://seattlegreenways.org/
