Currently in phased development and slated for completion in 2023, the Lake to Sound Trail (L2S) will link the shoreline of Lake Washington in Renton to the shoreline of Puget Sound in Des Moines, while passing through the cities of Tukwila, SeaTac and Burien. This 16-mile alignment will provide pedestrian and cycling access to recreational, residential, retail, and employment areas.

4Culture and King County Parks are seeking an experienced artist or artist-led team to develop functional design elements as a “Kit of Parts” in an effort to improve connectivity, access and navigation to destinations within the five distinct municipalities along the L2S Trail while fostering a cohesive sense of identity for the corridor. It is not expected that the selected artist/team create these parts, but rather that they conceptualize and design prototypes for specific elements and/or select pre-manufactured components that can be used in conjunction with custom elements in various configurations along the entire passage.
