Longfellow Creek/Roxhill Gateway

Longfellow Creek/Roxhill Gateway, West Seattle, WA

Providing gateways to a neighborhood legacy trail.

The City of Seattle joined with Delridge and Westwood Neighborhood residents to create a legacy trail along Longfellow Creek, one of only three remaining free-flowing creeks in Seattle. Pomegranate Center developed a community-based plan for the three-mile trail and facilitated the design and construction of a model gateway, serving as a prototype for future gateways and markers along the trail. The metal armature of this first gateway, fabricated by artist Paul Sorey, sets a consistent design standard for all future sites. Tile markers, created by community members, will change with talents and local characteristics.
