Cleveland's Open Streets Movement
Coming this Summer!
The ciCLEvia movement opens the streets, encouraging Cleveland communities to be active, build community and engage in a culture of health.
to reimagine a street segment as a place for people to be active and build community. What do you see for the streets of Cleveland? How do you ciCLEvia?
a Cleveland street segment that is temporarily closed to vehicle traffic and open to all forms of people-powered movement. Eat. Play. Walk. Roll.
The ciCLEvia Planning Team and a coalition of health and sustainability advocates have been hard at work preparing a transformative movement premiering in Cleveland in Summer of 2016. Cleveland will join the list of cities from all over the world in hosting open streets events! Open streets, also called ciclovias, are family-oriented, neighborhood-based programs that are accessible to residents of all ages and abilities. Streets are closed to cars and open to the public, enabling people to walk, jog, bike, and skate in the streets with a focus on health and social engagement.
CiCLEvia will debut in the Clark-Fulton, Ohio City, and Tremont neighborhoods along West 25th Street from Wade Avenue to MetroHealth Drive.
The series is entirely inclusive: everyone from babies to the elderly and experienced cyclists to residents with wheelchairs will benefit directly from participating in the movement.
When we open the streets, we hope to find all forms of people-powered movement. From salsa dancing and yoga, to biking and family friendly games, ciCLEvia will tap into Cleveland’s imagination and encourage people to be active and connect to their community all while having fun!
