What if you could close down a city street, and use it for a few hours of good, healthy, family fun? You would have OpenStreetsPGH. Come Downtown and walk, run, bike and skate through the streets of Pittsburgh. It’s a whole new way to look at and experience your city. And a whole new way to have fun with your friends and family.
OpenStreetsPGH is part of a movement called Ciclovia, which includes 100’s of cities across the globe. It is also a group of businesses, neighbors, non-profits, and others who want to help Pittsburgh be the healthiest, most active, and happiest city it can be. It’s a car-free event that encourages people to use active forms of transportation and engage in activities in spaces generally reserved for motor vehicles. Just how much fun can you pack into three-and-a-half miles? Come and find out!
OpenStreetsPGH will take place on Sunday, July 26, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. OpenStreetsPGH runs from Market Square to Penn Avenue downtown, through the Strip and all the way to Lawrenceville’s bustling business district. Visit OpenStreetsPGH website for more details about the ways that you can experience one big open street.
