Walkable Washington: Skagit River Waterfront Redevelopment Project

The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.

 

The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.

 

Skagit River Waterfront Redevelopment Project

Mount Vernon - Skagit Riverwalk

As part of the Mount Vernon Downtown Flood Protection and Revitalization Project, waterfront redevelopment along the Skagit River includes a public riverfront park, a river promenade, and a trail system. The final construction of a 24-foot wide pedestrian trail along the Skagit River and through downtown Mount Vernon is scheduled to be finished in August 2014; residents of Mount Vernon have already begun to use completed sections of the trail.
