Open Streets would not be possible without the help of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the City Special Events Department, the Departments of Streets, Health, and Parks and Recreation - their staffs and our volunteers.
The Commitment of Open Streets
St. Louis Open Streets is a visible commitment to healthy and active living, environmentally responsible transportation, economic vitality, and quality of life.
Its chief purpose - to encourage healthy, active living - is accomplished by offering the space to engage in exercise and healthy recreation and by providing educational instruction that underscores the importance of physical activity.
The emphasis on environmentally responsible transportation is achieved by providing participants with an area to bike, walk and jog, while the support for economic vitality is gained by familiarizing customers with the City’s growing business districts.
