This Saturday St. Louis Open Streets return with an open street event on Compton Ave. between Cherokee Street and Meramec.
Street will be temporarily closed to automobile traffic, so that people may use the street for Walking, Biking, and nearly any activity – except driving.
Residents are free to roam about the street participating in planned exercise stations (yoga, dancing, hopscotch, pick-up games, etc.), as well as travel the route, connecting between destinations, walking or biking.
These fun Open Street events demonstrate the important role public space plays within a community, as well as help create a vision for what a stronger, more vibrant neighborhood with effective use of our public space.
Additionally, by promoting safe places for activity and interaction, Open Streets events help promote positive civic engagement and enhance social capital.
