Sunday Streets Berkeley
Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”) closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and providing spontaneity and discovery.
The Sunday Streets Berkeley working committee consists ofLivable Berkeley, theEast Bay Bicycle Coalition, theEcology Center, theDowntown Berkeley Association, theNorth Shattuck Association, and theOffice of Mayor Tom Bates.
