Lake Wenatchee Pedestrian Bridge

Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks will use this grant to build a pedestrian bridge in Lake Wenatchee State Park, dramatically transforming one of Washington’s most stunning and popular destinations. The bridge will link the northern and southern portions of the park, which are separated by the Wenatchee River. Sited at the previously disturbed location of an old abandoned roadway alignment, the new bridge and its approaches to existing trails will improve user safety and experience by allowing them to move freely between the more developed southern portion and the more natural northern portion without having to walk along a 1.1-mile stretch of State Route 207.
