East Howe Steps Plaza Community Celebration May 7

East Howe Steps Plaza is ready to welcome the community.  Located just south of 1910 Fairview Ave E., the new plaza serves as a connector to the well-known Capitol Hill Steps. It’s now the latest public space to meet friends at or pause for a break during a walk or bike ride around the lake. 

Opening activities on Sunday, May 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. will include a ribbon cutting at 11:15, an active stair climb, a shorter walk up a segment of the steps, balloons for the kids, coffee and pastries as well as treats for our canine friends.

East Howe Steps Plaza is a community-led project that began with an idea nearly 10 years ago by Brian Ramey, a long-time Eastlake resident. It has been carried forth by a group of Eastlake neighbors interested in fostering outdoor connections. It will now provide a new community space for Eastlake with the bonus of some shared parking.
