Bear Creek Park Trail Development

Category Overview

Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.

Project Highlights

This project is the development of approximately 2325 linear feet of multi-use trail within Bear Creek Park. This project will link the existing trail underpass at Union Hill Road with Redmond Way. A trail crossing light is currently under design by the City. The trail will then tie into the existing trail constructed at Town Center which links to the Sammamish River Trail. This project is a phase of the Bear & Evans Creek Trail & Greenway, a trail system that connects to four regional trails and provides looped trails around the City of Redmond.
