Let's check out the new path from the Burke-Gilman Trail to Seattle Children's Hospital and join the celebration!

Just off the Burke-Gilman Trail, to the east of the University Bridge/The Wall of Death art installation, is Husky Grind at Mercer Court. Turn south off the Burke-Gilman Trail to find the little plaza outside Husky Grind to gather at 10:00 a.m. and head out by 10:20 a.m.

We'll navigate the Burke-Gilman Trail detour through UW together on our way to the brand new path that connects Children's Hospital to the trail.

Lots of fun stuff to do at the Livable Streets Celebration:
