Bradford Trail Connector ready just in time for Seafair

A new trail link connecting Genessee Park to the surrounding neighborhood was completed on Friday just in time for Seafair.  The Bradford Trail Connector is ADA accessible and provides a new path to the park for all users.  Genessee Park is a popular place to watch the Seafair festivities, so the trail connection is likely to get quite a bit of use in its inaugural week.

Neighbors and visitors have been “voting with their feet” for years by carving out the informal foot path in the photo above. The idea for the connection formally emerged as the community put together its neighborhood plan.  It was funded through the Bridging the Gap levy.  Enjoy the show!
