From the Wallingford Community Council:
Join us on a family-friendly walk along Lake Union to learn about the public access points on Lake Union. Free and open to the public.
When: 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday October 7th, 2017. Rain or shine.
Where: Waterway 22 (bottom of Stone Way North). We’ll meet where the Burke Gilman Trail intersects with Stone Way, in the parking lot area by Solsticio – N. 34th St). Then about 3:15 p.m., we’ll begin to work our way east toward Waterway 15 (just to the west of Ivar’s, NE Northlake Way/4th Ave NE). For those so inclined, join us after the walk for Ivar’s Happy Hour.
Why: Wallingford’s public waterways are wonderful features of our community and the Wallingford Community Council has made access to the public waterways a key action item. We hold this walk to raise awareness of where the public access points are along the Wallingford section of Lake Union. In addition, we want to improve shoreline habitats. Your input is vital.
What: We will visit each Waterway of Wallingford, generating ideas and making plans as we go. Please join us and add your thoughts to the mix. If you are handy with the phone and social media – help us to raise awareness of each Waterway on google maps and other social sites with your photos and comments.
Do you have ideas for preserving and using Wallingford’s public waterways? Opportunities for contemplative scenic views? Restoring healthy habitats for native fauna and flora? Places to hand launch non-motorized watercraft, like kayaks? A stopover point for bicyclists, runners, and walkers using the Burke-Gilman Trail? Places to swim (for kids and their parents, for dogs and their humans, and for everyone else)? Spots to watch wildlife (otters, herons and more)? Beaches for picnics (first date, play date, birthday…)?
Can’t make it? That’s ok, you can use this map to find the public access points to the water.
