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.

Repairs to the Cedar River Trestle Bridge begin May 11 through August 31, 2020. During this time, both the Maplewood Roadside parking lot, access to the river below the bridge, and a segment of the Cedar River Trail across the bridge will be closed. Detour is along the Hwy 169 sidewalk, from Riverview Park to a trail connection east of Maplewood Roadside Park entrance at SE 7th St.    


COVID-19 update:  Walking and being outside are considered essential for mental and physical well-being during this unusual time.  Follow COVID-19 protocols in public spaces to ensure safe experiences for everyone.

Park amenities remain closed, such as playgrounds, basketball courts and other active recreation areas within city parks, until further notice. 

PICNIC SHELTERS:  Out of an abundance of caution, picnic shelters will remain closed through the 2020 season.  Reservations for next season will be available starting January 2, 2021.

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.

A picnic shelter is nestled between the bank of the Cedar River and the Cedar River Trail. The shelter and park are accessed from the parking lot by crossing the new bridge over the Cedar River. A restroom is on-site, and the shelter has two barbecues.

Picnic Shelter Amenities

  • Five (5) picnic tables
  • Two (2) barbecues
  • ADA accessible
  • Maximum occupancy of 50

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.
