The purpose of the Silver Lake trail project is to improve recreational opportunities and pathways around Silver Lake so people of all abilities can safely enjoy it by creating an accessible, connected recreational route all around the lake. This project will provide a continuous hard-surfaced, multi-use trail around Silver Lake that provides accessibility to all Everett community members.
Proposed scope of work
Much of the Silver Lake perimeter already features hard-surfaced trails. This project will create new sections of trails and improve existing sections to provide a continuous hard-surfaced, multi-use, accessible trail around Silver Lake. Project elements will include:
Trail alignment around the perimeter of Silver Lake
Address stormwater issues within Thornton A. Sullivan Park
Address erosion issues within Thornton A. Sullivan Park
Provide ADA accessibility
Provide as much public access adjacent to the lake shoreline as possible
