The Juneau Downtown Seawalk spanning from the Mayor Bill Overstreet Park to Gold Creek received an Excellence on the Waterfront Honor Award from the Waterfront Center. For 40 years, the international awards program has recognized projects that enhance the public realm along its natural and community shorelines. The Downtown Seawalk provides urban residents and office workers with attractive outdoor recreation, including steps to tidelands and the beach. It also relieves downtown street congestion and creates a higher quality water experience for visitors and residents. Judges remarked the Seawalk is a stunning visual and interpretive experience for Juneau.

The Waterfront Center will host “Celebrating the Winners” of the 34th Excellence on the Waterfront Awards Program Webinars – October 25-26, 2021, from 5:00 – 7:00 P.M. EDT
