The Richmond Wellness Trail will enhance access to urban green spaces by creating a new, safe bike/pedestrian trail connecting downtown Richmond to the Richmond shoreline.
-Phase 1 of the project will connect BART and downtown Richmond to the Richmond Greenway, Unity Park, MLK Park, and the Bay Trail.
-GroundWork Richmond will be planting 148 new trees along the trail. Most of the trail will be separated from traffic by stormwater planters.
-Future Richmond Wellness Trail phases will add 2.65 miles and connect the trail to Richmond’s shoreline, the Richmond Ferry, and the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historic Park.
-Additional amenities such as art, additional wayfinding and interpretive signage, exercise equipment, site furnishings, and health‐related activities are included in future phases.
-Through Urban Greening funding from the California Natural Resources Agency, The Trust for Public Land and the City of Richmond, with a strong contingent of partners – including the National Park Service, Kaiser Permanente, GroundWork Richmond, The Watershed Project, and Rich City Rides- will transform 1.1 miles of residential streets into Phase 1 of this vision.
