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

Washington State Parks will use this grant to construct a pedestrian bridge over the Wenatchee River to safely link the north and south portions of Lake Wenatchee State Park. The new bridge and associated ADA approaches to existing trails will dramatically improve user safety and experience by allowing them to move freely between the more developed southern portion and the more natural northern portion of the park, without having to walk along a 1.1 mile stretch of the dangerous, non-ADA compliant highway 207. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is safe pedestrian access.
