A ribbon was cut to officially open a new Pedestrian/Bike Trail on S. 132nd Street in Burien on Wednesday, Oct. 26.

On hand to help were Deputy Mayor Bob Edgar, Councilmember Nancy Tosta, King County Councilmember Joe McDermott, King County Community Development’s Kathy Tremper, Department of Community & Human Services Terry Mark, US Department of HUD Jack Peters and the students and staff of Cedarhurst Elementary.

“Thank you to all who braved the rain to be apart of the S 132nd Pedestrian/Bike trail Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!” the city said. “We were even gifted by a Cedarhurst Choir performance!!”

The City added:

“This project was put together for the benefit of the students of Burien.

We hope that you enjoy this trail for years to come!!”

The new walkway is located between 9th Ave South and 10th Ave South on S. 132nd Street:

      This trail is on 132nd South, between 8th &10th Ave South. Cedarhurst Elementary children mostly use it to go back and forth to school. There is more to the trail that also runs on 132nd its between 10th Ave & 12th Ave. Hopefully the rest of this path will be fixed also. This part of the path seriously gets over grown.

      132nd St was never built all the way through between 12th Ave to 8th Ave South. In the 50’s when Cedarhurst was built. Kids in the area that were on the east side of 12th Ave had to walk around either on 136th or 128th to get to school. As I understand it from an article I read back from the archives of Highline Times, King County made a trail through the woods there for children to have a closer and safer walk to school.
