I was up walking around Bayview this weekend. I find it really bizarre that there are no walking or cycling paths on the west side of the hill, towards downtown. What's the point of living in a car-oriented development so close to downtown?? Or are they expecting the Roundhouse to provide everything anyone could ever need?

^There was a path, but it has now been overtaken by the seniors' residence construction. I imagine there is a new path as part of that plan.

^ Yup, public pedestrian path along the north property line of the Aquara development. It'll have stairs down to Tyee though, so not fully accessible.

There is also a pathway with stairs from the dog park down to Kimta.  

 

The previous pathway up the west side of the hill was quite nice because the path was surrounded by wildflowers.

I do the walk downtown at least 3x per week and it takes just over 3 minutes longer without the path. Kind of nice to not have the skateboarders coming into the cul de sac anymore.
