Details from Seattle Childrens: When: Saturday, June 14. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Where: Seattle Children’s Hospital Transit Hub Address: 4800 Sand Point Way NE We are inviting the community (our neighbors) to see, walk and ride the infrastructure improvements we have made near the hospital and around the neighborhood. This includes crosswalk improvements at 40th and 52nd streets, the Cycle Track on Sand Point Way, the Greenway on 39th St., and the recently completed connection to the Burke Gilman Trail behind the Hartman Building. Taken together these improvements make it safer and more convenient to families and people of all ages to connect to parks, schools, bus lines, and opportunities to exercise. Activities include walk and bike tours of these improvements, a Bike to School awards ceremony presented by Cascade Bicycle Club, free bike helmets and fittings, bike rodeo, food and prizes.
