The city of Bainbridge Island will mark the official opening of the downtown Winslow portion of the Sound to OlympicsTrail at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 3.
This project created the “first mile” of the Sound to Olympics Trail, a separated shared-use pathway along Highway 305, from Winslow Way to High School Road, which promotes all modes of non-motorized transportation, and connectivity to local trails.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 10:15 a.m. at the corner of Winslow Way and Highway 305.
The community is invited to walk or ride the new trail and explore new opportunities for viewing wildlife, Winslow Ravine Creek, and city views. Display booths and activities will be set up along the trail highlighting the environmental and health benefits of active transportation and opportunities for recreation, observing nature, and connecting to the John Nelson Linear Park.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as prizes and giveaway items such as water bottles and reflectors for the kids.
