Finishing Our Work: Comcast Signature Service at the West Duwamish Greenbelt

City Year and Comcast

The last time we were at the West Duwamish Greenbelt, City Year Seattle shifted 28 tons of rocks and created 81 feet of base layer rock for a new raised trail – but we didn’t quite finish. A few Fridays ago, with Comcast’s Signature Service Sponsorship, we returned to finish the trail and begin several other projects because there’s always more service to be done!

We began a smaller gravel trail deeper in the forest, trimmed trees and bushes that were growing too close to the edge of trails and cleared invasive blackberry. By the end of the day, we had completely finished the raised trail, beautified the forest and helped to protect the forest from encroaching blackberry.  As Jacobo Jimenez of Seattle Parks and Recreation said last time, “The trail that you saw here earlier today? We used to have to rebuild it on an annual basis.” Now he doesn’t and the Seattle community can enjoy our parks year-round.

Take a look at the slideshow below to see what our day was like. Thank you Comcast, for your support of our work and its results!
