Brief Description

The Eureka Waterfront Trail is located along the shore of Humboldt Bay from the former Eureka Holmes Lumber Mill site to Tydd Street on the eastern edge of the city. Eight artist designed benches will be located at intervals along the 6.3 miles. The trail is still being constructed. Other benches designed by local artist John King will be placed along it with interpretive signs describing historical points, wildlife, and natural environments. The project addresses healthy lifestyles, transportation and public safety issues, and its integration of arts and culture will celebrate, challenge and define local identity through eight very special interactive artist benches/sculptures. Eureka is sited on Wiyot ancestral lands. One or more tribal representatives will be involved in the process.
