Description
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 network of these streets across the Eastside 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 Kirkland Greenways!
