Elliott Bay Connections

Connecting and Revitalizing Parks on the Elliott Bay Waterfront

Elliott Bay Connections (EBC) is a public–private partnership to connect, restore and revitalize public parks along the Elliott Bay waterfront from Pier 62 (just north of the Seattle Aquarium) to The Beach at Expedia Group.

The EBC project, funded entirely by private philanthropic donations, is expected to begin construction in early 2025 and be complete by Summer 2026, in time for Seattle to welcome the FIFA World Cup.

Elliott Bay Connections will connect:

  • The parks of Elliott Bay with a new greenway trail between Waterfront Park and Olympic Sculpture Park.
  • People to Myrtle Edwards and Centennial Parks with the restoration and revitalization of these parks.
  • Visitors to the Salish Sea and the indigenous communities and culture that have lived and thrived here since time immemorial.
  • People to each other by helping make the Elliott Bay waterfront a welcoming place for all.

Elliott Bay Connections will create a new, protected greenway trail for people of all ages and abilities to walk, bike and roll on the east side of Alaskan Way between Pier 62 and the Olympic Sculpture Park. The greenway trail will complement the Seattle Department of Transportation’s Alaskan Way Safety Project, which will build a two-way protected bike lane on the west side of Alaskan Way.
