The Details

  1. It’s FREE and for EVERYONE. No matter the age, ability or neighborhood you rep, even if you have no clue what exactly Open Streets is, get out and onto the street. We promise you'll like it!

  2. Hop on the route wherever is most convenient for you. Remember there’s no beginning or end and the flow of people is like a two way street -- it goes both ways!

  3. The streets are open for you to explore our city’s neighborhoods and local business districts without the intensity of car traffic -- stroll or roll to eat, shop, play, socialize or simply enjoy the outdoors. The possibilities are endless.
