the project

Come Play In the Street! On Sunday, October 25, Central St between the Old City and Happy Holler was filled with thousands of people walking, riding bicycles and scootering. Kids and adults enjoying hula hooping, doing yoga, trying crossfit and so much more. Kids loved the bubble garden and the Mini Ninja Obstacle Course. This first annual event wasput on by Bike Walk Knoxville, with significant support from the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization and City of Knoxville.

the steps

We're completing the evalution component of Open Streets Knoxville 2015 in order to recruit 2016 major sponsors. We'll also be working with our 2015 partners on their in-kind donations of staff time and marketing support. 

why we're doing it

Open Streets events introduce Knoxville residents to fun physical activity and celebrate our streets as public spaces where we can all gather. Many local residents have little opportunity to access activity centers and events of this kind. Once residents are exposed to these opportunities, we expect Open Streets will contribute to long-term changes in the walkability and bikeability of our community, as awareness increases of the need for both places and infrastructure to walk and bicycle on a regular basis, and as the community’s capacity to make those changes increases.
