The City is working on acquiring land along the abandoned railway between Roeder Avenue and Meridian Street. This acquisition and development will provide the missing link connection for this trail corridor, which will connect the Irongate neighborhood with Bellingham Bay.
A new trail from Irongate to Cornwall Park was completed in 2016 and a new trail through Cornwall Park was completed in 2017.
