Your streets! Your day!

Open Streets Macon returns Sunday, October 1 from 2 pm to 6 pm! The streets of Macon will spring to life as a 1.5-mile stretch of street from the Washington Memorial Library to A. L. Miller Village is opened to people on foot and bike, and closed to motorized traffic (except for intersections where cars will be free to cross.)

Organized by Bike Walk Macon, this is the city's largest FREE recreation program, unlike any other in Macon-Bibb County. Open Streets are programs where the streets are temporarily closed to cars. People traffic replaces car traffic, and the streets become "paved parks" where people of all ages, abilities, and social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds can come out and improve their health.

 

More information about activity partner, volunteer, and sponsorship opportunities coming soon!
