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.
The City of Spokane will use this grant to renovate the Don Kardong Pedestrian Bridge on the Spokane River Centennial Trail. The City will install bridge decking and timber framing, lighting, guardrails, and scenic overlooks. The project remedies safety hazards, improves user experience, and extends the life of this critical trail link for another 40 years. Spokane will contribute $726,000 in cash and a private grant.
