Open Streets 2020

by AJ Eckman

Sunday, May 17 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

This free community event focuses on activities centered on active transportation, as well as emotional and physical well-being. We also encourage residents to meet their neighbors and learn about local businesses.

In 2014, our first Open Streets event stretched just two blocks on Water Street. In 2015, it expanded seven more city blocks. In 2019, we broke all of our records with over 200 community organizations present, over 8,000 attendees and a route that stretched over a mile.

On Sunday, May 17, Open Streets Lancaster will again close Water Street from Culliton Park to Mayor Janet C. Stork Corridor Park and open the streets for families and our community. The Open Streets initiative has been used in many cities to advocate for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and more safe spaces for physical activity. Our objective is to introduce families to important community organizations that offer resources to support physical, mental and social well-being through fun, interactive and educational stations.
