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.
