Georgetown + South Park Trail

Duwamish Valley Safe Streets (est. 2016) is a local coalition of community members advocating for safe streets for all. The grass-roots neighborhood organization is focused on connecting walking and biking routes to schools, parks and businesses.


South Seattle’s vibrant Georgetown and South Park neighborhoods sit on the banks of the Duwamish River, among artists, makers, growers, industrial producers, railways, truck routes, and homes. Though the neighborhoods are a short distance apart and very flat, it is difficult and often unsafe to travel between them by foot or bicycle. This community group is working to connect the neighborhoods via shared-use paths, improved sidewalks, and safe biking routes.

Join in on the action as the locals advocate and design a grass-root cohesive network for moving around by foot or wheels. The benefits of the connected network include:

– Expanding the number of retail services within easy walking and biking distance, fostering vital and resilient co-neighborhood retail business district.
– Enhancing access to public services and amenities (library, parks and open space, community center, banks and credit unions, food and clothing social services, groceries, arts and youth programs, festivals, and cultural events).
– Fostering social inclusion — the network will be free to use, built for all ages and all kinds of people.
– Increasing exercise, better health, and less air pollution.

Regionally, the DVSS network will fill the gaps to complete a protected bicycle network that would connect the Duwamish and Rainier Valleys to the Chief Sealth, Duwamish, and Green River trails, and Mountains to Sound Greenway. Such a network would safely connect thousands of people to light rail, critical services, cultural events, and accessible corridors to enjoy recreational opportunities outside the city.
