What is Open Streets About?​

Open Streets are unique events that have been held in over 100 cities in North America and involve the temporary closure of roadways to vehicular traffic, allowing people to use them for a host of healthy and fun physical activities like walking, cycling, yoga, dancing and fitness.

The goals of Open Streets Windsor are to:

  • Encourage active transportation and physical activity;
  • Encourage community building activities;
  • Promote community-led active living initiatives;
  • Showcase recently improved streetscapes;
  • Provide an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to participate along the route.

Where can vehicles cross the route?

Cars will be able to cross the route at the following 9 signalized intersections during the event:

  • Huron Church Road @ University Avenue West
  • Crawford Avenue @ University Avenue West
  • Bruce Avenue @ University Avenue West
  • Pelissier Street @ University Avenue West
  • McDougall Street @ University Avenue East
  • Glengarry Avenue @ University Avenue East
  • Gladstone Avenue @ Wyandotte Street East
  • Lincoln Road @ Wyandotte Street East
  • Walker Road @ Wyandotte Street East

How Can I Get Involved?

The proposed route spans approximately 8 kilometres, so the opportunities for community involvement are vast. Details are still being finalized, but in the meantime, if you are interested in volunteering or if you are a business or organization that would like to be involved, please contact us using the information below.

This event is made possible through generous funding from the Ontario 150 Community Celebration Program, through the Government of Ontario.
