Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to provide input for the Soft Surface Trails Plan 

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to participate in planning for the future of soft surface trails throughout Seattle. Please join us on Tues., Dec. 20, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Jefferson Horticulture Bldg., 1600 South Dakota St., Seattle, WA 98108.

This meeting is an opportunity to learn about soft surface trails in Seattle and to provide input on the plan for trails within SPR’s natural areas. The final plan will include recommendations for trail maintenance standards, levels of service and trail hierarchy, a determination process for how new trails are formed and overall guidance for the future of trails throughout Seattle. This plan is not specific to one particular park or area.

The Soft Surface Trails Plan will incorporate Seattle Parks and Recreation’s commitment to healthy people, healthy environment and strong communities. It will provide an outline for future funding opportunities. 

SPR’s trail program marks a commitment to address the need for trail development standards, construction and maintenance. Under the program, we are taking an inventory of existing trails and coordinating new trail development.

For more information on the meeting please contact Chukundi Salisbury at 206-684-4122 or email  For more informaiton on SPR trails visit
