Who Are We?
Greenwood-Phinney Greenways is a group of neighbors like you who are working to make their streets safer and more comfortable for everybody.
Greenwood-Phinney Greenways works towards achieving a network of safe non-motorized transportation facilities that connect destinations throughout our neighborhoods as well as to Seattle’s citywide network of Neighborhood Greenways and other bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Our vision is livable neighborhoods in Greenwood and Phinney Ridge where residents of all ages and abilities feel comfortable and safe choosing non-motorized transportation, such as walking or bicycling, for local trips and/or trips between neighborhoods.

Get involved or learn more about our top priority to create safe routes to the new school complex at Wilson-Pacific. We are also working on creating a safe route to school on 6th Ave NW.
- Pop Up Neighborhood Greenway: We created a “pop up neighborhood greenway” to demonstrate what neighborhood greenways could mean for our neighborhoods. It included painted speed humps and bikes with directional arrows in the street. It also included signage on polls to direct people to community destinations and let them know how far it is.
- Neighborhood Street Design planning: We worked with a UW Landscape Architecture Class to engage the community in a process to re-imagine how our streets and parks could better serve the Greenwood neighborhood. Learn more and see the exciting design ideas.
- Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan: Seattle adopted 95% of our crowd sourced knowledge into Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan.
- Crowd sourced mapping: We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below)
