Open Streets 704, the popular program that allows participants the opportunity to explore Charlotte-Mecklenburg in ways that aren’t possible by car, returns on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 1-5 p.m.
Everyone is invited to bike, walk, skateboard or dance their way along the 4-mile route, which stretches from West End to Dilworth and passes through five County parks: Latta Park, Frazier Park, James Dennis Rash Third Ward Neighborhood Park, Romare Bearden Park and Seversville Park. Come and enjoy music, food and more than 70 free activities, spanning four zones along the route: Arts and Science Zone, Southminster Family Zone, Green Zone and Wellness Zone. You can view the route map and details about the zones here. New for September! The Sept. 15 event will include a “Paint the Pavement” art project at Mint Street near Park Avenue and free activities in Seversville Park made possible by West End Partners. Open Streets 704, which draws tens of thousands of neighbors outdoors for a day of car(e)-free streets each spring and fall, is made possible through a partnership between Partners for Parks, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, Mecklenburg County Public Health, Charlotte Department of Transportation, and the support of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and Charlotte Fire departments.
