    Still noting the "Bike Park" designation in the name of this group. Is that still a developing reality or a pipe dream? ...

    Still a developing reality!

    Benjamin: The last official update on this project was in May 2017 on the Seattle Parks website: www.seattle.gov/parks/about-us/current-projects/cheasty-mountain-bike/pedestrian-trail-pilot-project The project is still a developing reality at this time, but it has been slower than desired due to politics. Stay tuned to this page for news over the coming months.

    Aha. Thought I hadn't seen an update in a while. Worried it's 5-10 out still and with quickly growing kiddos on bikes was hoping they'd have an opportunity to play in the neighborhood - we're Beacon locals. But alas we will still slog up to Duthie or down to Swan Creek for the foreseeable future.
