Riverview Park encompasses 11-acres and was acquired in 1979 with Community Development Block Grant funds. It is now a vital part of the city's Cedar River Greenway System.

The Cedar River Greenway encompasses over 550 acres of developed and undeveloped parks, open space, trails, and the Maplewood Golf Course along the Cedar River.


COVID-19 Update:  Face coverings are not required when outside, unless in crowded outdoor spaces when 6-foot distances cannot be maintained.  Remember COVID-19 is still present in our communities and those not fully vaccinated should continue to follow CDC guidelines.  For information on Safe Reopening:  Public Health - Seattle & King County.


PICNIC SHELTERS are not currently available to rent due to COVID-19 protocols.


TRAIL Updates

FOR YOUR SAFETY please follow directions on all posted signage.

The Cedar River Trail is narrowed to one lane next to riverbank erosion that occurred following the Cedar River flood event in February, between the Dog Park and Riverview Park. Bicyclists yield to pedestrians and USE EXTREME CAUTION in this area.  City staff are working to secure a plan for repairs to re-open the trail as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Riverview Bridge Replacement

Riverview Bridge replacement

Built in the 1960s, the old Riverview Park bridge spanned the Cedar River, with in-river treated timber piles supporting a steel and timber structure. Time, and flood debris damage, led the city to successfully seek legislative funding in 2014 to replace the old bridge with a single span, pedestrian aluminum bridge with a light penetrating grated surface.

Three interpretive signs describe the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe's former use of the Cedar River, and the two iconic fish who spawn below, the endangered Chinook and the Sockeye salmon.

The Seattle Aquarium will have trained naturalists on-site to help you spot spawning salmon in October.
