Pipeline Trail Connections

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

The Metropolitan Park District of Tacoma will use this grant to build a bridge into Swan Creek Park for nearby middle school and the low-income housing community and install lights along the trail next to the middle school. The work will develop .5-mile of trail that will connect to the future 62.5-mile, regional Pipeline Trail. The park district will contribute $1 million in voter-approved bonds.
