About Us

Kids Crossing Into ParkOur Vision

Imagine your neighborhood, knitted together with quiet residential streets where children and adults safely walk, ride bicycles, play and run. Imagine these streets are close to where you live and connect you to the places you want to go — the grocery store, your favorite coffee shop, your community center, your child’s school. Imagine traveling along a whole city network of streets designed first for children and adults who are walking and biking. Places where people are alert when they drive, and open their car doors carefully after they park. Welcome to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways.

Our Mission

We identify, advocate for, and activate safe and healthy streets for all. How? Check out our strategic plan. What are we doing in 2014? Maps, supporting diverse communities, holding meetups, advocating for, and celebrating safe healthy streets —  you can see we have a lot planned for 2014!

Who Are Greenways People?

We all are!

Formed in August 2011, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is a rapidly growing volunteer coalition representing many neighborhoods across Seattle to plan and advocate for safe, equitable, and comfortable streets connecting us to the places we use, whether we walk, drive, ride a bike, push a stroller, or move by wheelchair. We have a Core Group of about 30 people who lead their local neighborhood groups. Read Core Group bios here.

We have a small staff and a Steering Committee who focus on citywide operations as well as stay involved at the local level. Read Staff and Steering Committee bios here.
