Missing Link found: LWCF funds long-awaited project
Three recent grants from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund expanded outdoor recreation opportunities in Tacoma, Bothell and Chehalis.
The Point Defiance Missing Link is the culmination of a decades old dream to complete the final segment of the 7-mile waterfront pedestrian connection from downtown Tacoma to the treasured Point Defiance Park.
An interim trail opened in the fall and the final trail will be complete within the next few years, providing new opportunities for everyone who enjoys a waterfront stroll.
"This trail segment is a key investment in increasing both outdoor access and economic vitality in this community," said state legislator Representative Jake Fey (D-Tacoma). "I thank Congressmen Denny Heck and Derek Kilmer for supporting the LWCF and this grant to complete a renowned trail, work we have already begun at the state level."
