Seattle Summer Parkways

Volunteer for Seattle Summer Parkways!

Seattle Summer Parkways is back for 2016! Didn't get to come out and enjoy all the fun last year? Not to worry! Seattle Summer Parkways 2016 will host three separate events in three neighborhoods, giving YOU the opportunity to bike, skate, run, play and dance in the streets.

Summer Parkways are free, all-ages events that open up the city's largest public space - our streets - for you, your family, friends and neighbors to come out, enjoy the sun, have fun, enjoy outdoor activities, discover cool local businesses, delicious restaurants and cafes, and explore more using healthy active transportation to celebrate the spirit & personality of some of Seattle's amazing local communities.

At Seattle Summer Parkways 2016, you'll be car-free and care-free adventuring through the neighborhoods of Ballard, West Seattle and Rainier Valley via a several mile route, while visiting parks full of live music and activities all along the way. This year we'll be coordinating our events with the Sustainable Ballard Festival, Seattle's Big Day of Play and the Rainier Valley Heritage Festival for even more fun!

This is Seattle Summer Parkways.

Rainier Valley- August 13, 2016 – 12:30PM to 4:30PM (Parade starts at 11:00AM)

Ballard- August 27, 2016 – 11:00AM to 4:00PM

West Seattle- September 25, 2016 – 11:00AM to 4:00PM

Seattle Summer Parkways will also give you the chance to test out new or planned bikeways that link together city parks, community centers, and other community spaces. At parks along the route, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Cascade Bicycle Club and many other organizations will host activities, events, and live music.

Get out and explore your city, meet your neighbors and cruise carefree.
