Open Streets OKC is a local health and wellness project. At Open Streets, they believe active transportation–like biking or walking from point A to B–promotes healthier residents with closer ties to their community. Open Streets events reclaim part of a busy street for a few hours for non-motorized activity. Everyone attending is invited to walk, bike, skate or board while they meet local business owners and celebrate the unique charm of a historic Oklahoma City neighborhood.
The second annual Open Streets OKC event took place on Uptown NW 23rd St. on March 22, 2015. It is estimated that between 25,000 and 30,000 OKC residents showed up to the event.
There will be another Open Streets event in South OKC in the fall. You can find out more at www.openstreetsokc.com
