June 6th, 2015 – 9:00AM – 4:00PM

Beach Streets Uptown opens streets up for walking, bicycling, and socializing by temporarily closing thoroughfares to automobile traffic. Known more generally as Open Streets events, similar events are now occurring across the world, and are a common way of pursuing innovative strategies to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals. The City of Long Beach, with funding from Metro, will use Beach Streets Uptown to showcase local neighborhoods, businesses, and parks, as well as local transit, health, and recreation options. The route will feature Atlantic Ave., from Wardlow Rd. to Houghton Park, and is an invitation to reimagine how we use our streets.
