More about Circle the City:
Circle The City is Boston's first Open Streets initiative promoting healthy, active living through connecting people to some of Boston's greatest urban resources--our parks. Circle The City launched this Summer with Boston's first Open Streets events that will draw people out of their homes and cars and onto safe, car-free streets for walking, biking, rolling and outdoor fun. For three Sundays (June 24, July 15 and August 5), you can ride, skate and skip your way through traffic-free roads lined with dozens of local vendors. Selected as a 2012 Urban Signature Project of the America’s Great Outdoors, Circle The City is a collaborative project of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, The Boston Collaborative for Food and Fitness, Franklin Park Coalition, LivableStreets Alliance and the City of Boston. Circle The City goals include encouragement of healthy engagement with our parks by all residents of Boston, improving neighborhood accessibility to parks and open space, gathering the community for walking, biking and other free activities on safe, car-free streets, and increasing the involvement of youth in our parks.
