Thanks to all who attended the three public meetings and sent your interests and suggestions in other ways.

Johnson|Southerland compiled all the comments and suggestions about the concept plans into a final trail and trail access plan.
Cheasty Greenspace Trail Master Plan You will need adobe acrobat reader to view this document.

The Friends of Cheasty at Mountain view have been organizing regular work parties, raising funds and working with parks to complete (so far) two phases of this work:

  • Phase One, the Hazelnut Trail was complete last year.
  • Phase Two, a trail entrance at S. Angeline St. and 27th Avenue S. allows people from the Lockmore neighborhood to use the trail.
The entrance is being completed now and will soon have an official park sign. Take a walk in the forest; it is so beautiful!!!

Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF)
$15,000: Planning and Design 2009
$20,000: Construction 2010 Phase 1 volunteer labor; ongoing
$20,000: Construction 20122 Phase 2


The project goal is to engage neighbors in a community planning process for creating a trail plan, beautified entrances, and new trails in the Mountain View part of the Cheasty Greenspace. The original entrance is located at the SW intersection of Columbia Way/Alaska St. and Mt. View Drive. Another entrance has been added at S, Angeline St. and 27th Ave S.

The Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountainview have applied for and received three Neighborhood Matching Fund awards to design a trail plan for the Cheasty Greenspace at Mountainview.

Another goal is to try to link the new Columbia City Light Rail Station , using trails, with the communities of Rainier Vista, Beacon Hill, Columbia City and Beacon Hill and Lockmore.


Since 2008, volunteers have been hosting regular work parties to remove garbage, clear the ivy and blackberry and install native plants. Soon the official Friends of group was formed and partnered with the Green Seattle Partnership to welcome volunteers from all over the city to help restore this small urban forest. For more information, please see Cheasty Greenspace or check out the project sign at S. Angeline St. and 27th Ave S.
