Why did you come to Switch Open Street Sundays on June 9? (Or why didn’t you come?) Was it for the Recreation, Family Fun, to make a political statement, to bike, jog, people watch, or do you just happen to live on the route?
Last Sunday, as part of HRM Bike Week, a 2km route on the Halifax peninsula was closed to vehicular traffic from 10am to 3pm and open to walkers, runners, bikers, in-line skaters, strollers, and much more. Inspired by the growing number of successful “open street” type events hosted in cites across the globe, Switch is about promoting healthy and active living, in a fun and festive community-based atmosphere.
Dream Sessions: What’s Possible?
On June 12th and June 19th the Planning and Design Centre, Stepping Up and a team of volunteers will be hosting visioning sessions for the future of Switch Open Street Sundays in HRM.
