This summer, the businesses and attractions on Seattle’s downtown waterfront will be bustling with visitors looking to experience a part of Seattle’s unique character. Visitors will notice a new attraction on the waterfront – 11 information and educational panels designed to help them navigate, explore, and learn about the waterfront’s rich past and exciting future.
In June, the information panels will be placed at high-traffic spots along the waterfront, and at 12-feet tall, they’ll be hard to miss! Visitors who get up-close and personal with the panels will find information about waterfront attractions and businesses, pedestrian routes, parking options, historical places and events, and plans to improve the waterfront for future generations.
The panels are part of a larger effort to show the waterfront is active, and easy to access and navigate during the busy summer season, as well as during construction of the Elliott Bay Seawall and future construction of Waterfront Seattle improvements including new parks, paths and public open spaces.
Check out the panels the next time you’re on the waterfront and let us know what you think.
The Waterfront Program replaces the Elliott Bay Seawall, and designs and constructs improvements to the waterfront in downtown Seattle. Improvements include a new pedestrian promenade, a two-way cycle track, a new Alaskan Way that accommodates all modes of travel, two rebuilt public piers, new parks and paths, and new pedestrian connections between the city and waterfront.
