Accessibility


We here at the March for Science have worked to make this march as accessible to all who wish to celebrate and defend science and the scientific community with us. We know science works best when everyone is included. Regardless of your level of ability, we hope you will join us April 14th!

 

March Route
 

The March route:

  • Starts at Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill at 10 am
  • March starts at Pine and 11th
  • Pine towards downtown (no hill until significant downhill leaving Capitol Hill)
  • Right on 4th (very slight uphill)
  • Right on Denny
  • Left on 5th Ave (slight uphill)
  • Left on Harrison into Seattle Center to International Fountain

The march is thought to take an able-bodied person roughly 60 minutes.

In addition, numerous coffee shops have generously volunteered their establishments to be safe, clean places along the way for marchers who may need to take a break for a while, free of charge.

  • Starbucks on 7th between Pine and Pike

Joining Late or Cheering On Marchers


There are three natural places along the march route for folks to either establish a cheering section or join the march mid-way.

  • 4th and Pine is approximately halfway through the march and has the best access to public transit as well as a large space for marchers and march supporters to gather.
  • The small strip park at Bell and 4th in Belltown neighborhood is a great place for science supporters.
  • The north end of Broad Street park (intersection of Broad, 5th, and Thomas) is the best place to greet marchers as they make the home stretch into the Seattle Center.
