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 Lynnwood Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department will use this grant renovate 0.35 miles of Scriber Creek Trail that connects the City Center neighborhood, Transit Center with the future City Center Light Rail Station, and South Lynnwood neighborhood in the City of Lynnwood in south Snohomish County. This project is the third and final phase of Scriber Creek Trail, which is a 1-mile spur off the regional Interurban Trail. The 19-mile Interurban Trail is the most significant all-ages and abilities urban trail in Snohomish County. The existing Scriber Creek Trail is narrow and prone to flooding, making it unsuitable for biking and year-round use. The overall goal is to upgrade the trail into a 12-16 feet wide, accessible bicycle and pedestrian trail to connect four parks along Scriber Creek. The primary outdoor recreation opportunities are walking, cycling, and nature viewing.
