Imagine the freedom of riding your bike, walking, or rolling down the street with friends, neighbors, and complete strangers. You can explore a neighborhood via a several-mile long route that connects to neighborhood parks full of fun activities. This is Seattle Summer Parkways 2015 and it’s coming to Ballard.
Seattle Summer Parkways will give you the chance to test out new or planned bikeways that link together city parks, community centers, and other community spaces. At parks along the route, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Cascade Bicycle Club, and many other organizations will host activities, events, and live music. Get out and explore your city, car-free and carefree.
