were added this year.
In addition to a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees will be able to learn more about the project itself and enjoy a one-mile Fun Walk along the trail with friends and family.
The self-paced Fun Walk will head east from University to Bowdish and return back to the Plaza. Stop along the way and enjoy displays featuring information about local entities such as the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum, Waste Management, Spokane Valley Parks & Recreation, Sunshine Disposal & Recycling, Neighborhood Watch, and the City of Spokane Valley, each with free giveaways for the first 100 Fun Walk participants, including a kids' bike helmet fitting and giveaway from S.C.O.P.E.!
The Appleway Trail includes a paved multi-use pathway that extends from University to Pines and will eventually connect to the existing multi-use pathway along Appleway at the eastern city limits. Construction of the next segment, between Pines and Evergreen, is anticipated for design and construction in 2017 and 2018 and is funded by the Federal Transportation Alternatives Program and the Federal Surface Transportation Program.
Please be sure to park in designated Trail parking areas at the STA Pence-Cole Transit Center at 4th and University or in the Spokane Valley Tech parking lot on University just north of the University Plaza entrance to the trail.
