We're happy to be participating in Open Streets St. Pete again this year! Open Streets St Pete is a group of St. Petersburg residents that are looking to make St. Pete Healthy, Fun and Safe. Their goal is to provide public access to St Petersburg streets and roadways for active transportation, exploration and fun.
Throughout the country and the world, cities are hosting “Ciclovia” or “Open Streets” events. Streets in unique parts of the city are shut down to automotive traffic for an afternoon, or a day, and opened up to the general public, free of charge, for a safe and fun opportunity to walk, stroll, skate, bike, skateboard, wheelchair, or just hang out. The intent is to take one of the city’s largest open spaces (the streets) and make a safe and creative space for people to participate in healthy and fun activities while also gaining a unique perspective of the city in which they live.
