From Central Seattle Greenways:
As you may know, the greenway that parallels 23rd Ave from Rainier to
Roanoke (inaccurately called the Central Area Neighborhood Greenway by
the City) has had an unfortunate interruption between Boyer and
Interlaken. Thanks to some heroic efforts by Parks Dept staff and some
great advocacy work from Montlake Greenways, Montlake residents, and
Central Seattle Greenways, the staircase between Boyer and Interlaken
has been rebuilt to be safe for people walking — and it has a runnel
for people to walk their bikes up or down. This is an exciting
development for the Montlake neighborhood in particular, and it makes
the greenway much more useful for most users. *
To celebrate, the Parks Dept and SDOT are hosting a ribbon-cutting at
the staircase (Boyer & E Howe) at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 8,
and a celebration from 10 to noon at Montlake Community Center with
food, face painting, music, and general gaiety. Montlake Bicycle Shop
will be there, too, providing free bicycle safety checks.
Bring the kids and check out the new staircase!
*While most users will find the staircase helpful, wheelchair users,
family bikers, cyclists on cargo bikes, and people pushing strollers
will still need to go over to 24th and use the sidewalk to climb the
hill up to Interlaken.
