I grew up in a tight-knit community in New York, where we had annual block parties that let us ride our bikes and play games in the street. That’s why I’m a huge fan of the Sunday Streets concept in San Francisco.
Sunday Streets coordinates events throughout the city where streets are closed to cars for several hours so neighbors and visitors can participate in a variety of physical activities such as biking, dancing and yoga. Non-profit and health groups also provide info and activities about their services.
The eight dates and locations for Sunday Streets 2014 have been set, with such neighborhoods as the Mission, Excelsior and Bayview among the lineup. Click here for the full schedule.
