This summer, you can explore two distinct Seattle neighborhoods: Ballard and the Central District via a 3-7 mile route while experiencing neighborhood parks full of fun activities.  This is Seattle Summer Parkways and is happening in Ballard on Saturday September 19, 2015, 11 am – 3 pm.

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 Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Cascade Bicycle Club and many other organizations will host activities, events, and live music.  Get out and explore your city, meet your neighbors and cruise carefree.

  1. One of the stops along the parkway is going to be at the future 14th Ave NW Park. We’re thinking it would be fun to mock up the layout of the park and have family friendly activities. If you’re interested in helping us brainstorm ideas and put together the event at this space, please contact me at eastballard@gmail.com. Our first planning meeting will be the evening of July 22.
