Community Partners for Open Streets
September 17, 2017 

Why Open Streets Windsor needs Community Partners

Open Streets Windsor is more than providing a space for people to walk, cycle, roller blade, etc. It is about engaging the community! The Open Streets Windsor route includes designated hubs for people who would like to participate in other free activities that promote culture, healthy and active lifestyles, and that’s where you come in!

Why should I be involved?

Outdoor yoga at September 2016 eventOpen Streets is the largest free recreation program in the city's history. It is a great way to broaden the audience for the brand and service(s) you, your agency, organization, or business offers. We had over 10,000 participants attend the 2016 events.

What supporting activities can I provide?

Open Street Activities must:

  • Be free
  • Focus on health, physical activity, arts or culture
  • Be participatory
  • Be feasible
  • Be able to engage large audiences
  • Be accessible for people of all ages and abilities

New this year - An Ontario 150 Celebration!

That's right! We have an entire hub at Open Streets dedicated to Ontario's 150th Anniversary and the magnificent history and diversity in our community. Visit the Ontario 150 Hub on University Avenue between Bruce and Janette. Learn about using 3D printing to create a model of our provincial flower - the Trillium. Take a break from the route to sit and enjoy a musical or dance performance by one of our many multicultural groups. View the Museum Windsor and First Nations exhibits or join in with everyone painting a mural. Enjoy a cupcake or cookie as you celebrate Ontario's 150 with your friends, family and neighbours.

Open Streets Windsor is funded [in part] by Ontario 150 and the City of Windsor.
