PROJECT DESCRIPTION

History
During the development of the Rainier Beach 2014 Neighborhood Plan in the 1990s, the community recognized the significance of the 52nd Avenue South pedestrian walkway in linking the commercial core with light rail and residential neighborhoods. The corridor stretches along 52nd Avenue South between S. Henderson St. and Rainier Avenue S. in the Rainier Beach neighborhood and provides important links between Rainier Beach High School, Rainier Beach Community Center, Rainier Beach Library, the Rainier Beach Business District and the Lake Washington Apartments.

Mapes Creek 52nd Avenue Walkway received Department of Neighborhood (DON) Funds to create a Walkway Plan in 1999 and in 2002 the community received another DON grant to implement the first phase of the Walkway at the Henderson Street Plaza. In 2002 Friends of Lake Washington Apartments applied for and received $100,000 from the Pro Parks Opportunity Fund to continue the implementation of the Mapes Creek 52nd Avenue Walkway Plan.
