Riverwalk Trail Phase 4

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 Sponsor obtained an appraisal and review and made made several good faith efforts in 2009-2010 to acquire the Knutson property, but the seller remained unwilling. The sponsor completed some of the design work (to approx 60%), but did not seek reimbursement for costs incurred. There is also a planned future levee setback that will delay any development in this area and may require additional design work. It became increasingly unlikely that the project could be completed within required timelines. The project will close as Not Completed.
