Learn about the future of the Chambers Creek Canyon Trail and how you can be involved in this wonderful project. The City of Lakewood, the City of University Place, and Pierce County have worked together to create a Trail Design Report to develop a walking trail through the Chambers Creek Canyon.

The Design Report includes details of the trail alignment, bridge crossing, trailhead layouts, cost estimates, and a phasing plan.

Staff from the Cities and County will be on hand to answer questions, take public input, and share information on next steps at the Environmental Services Building, 9850 64th St. West in University Place, 98467. 

For more information contact Joseph at 253-798-4261.
