HISTORY

About Streets Alive

Twice a year, both in May & September, a section of streets are closed to cars for an afternoon and the entire community is invited to walk, bicycle, dance, play and socialize in the street. Streets Alive! is inspired by a growing movement to create space for healthy activity in urban places. In the past 5 years, over 65 cities in North America have successfully launched Street Alive! initiatives, also known as Open Streets, Sunday Parkways, and Ciclovias. Streets Alive! is a joyful, inclusive, lively way to promote active living, re-envision possibilities for urban space and encourage more walking, cycling and rolling for daily transportation. These in turn lead to sustainability, improved health, safe communities, tourism & economic development.

Participants

3,000 people from the community are expected to participate, coming from downtown neighborhoods, local schools and colleges, and visitors from beyond. The city government, local school district, local cycling clubs and community groups are actively involved in organizing the event.
