What We Do

Open Streets 704 is a series of Charlotte events that will literally open a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people!

Taking cues from similar events around the country and the world, Open Streets 704 aims to build a better, healthier, connected community by encouraging Charlotte and Mecklenburg area residents to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.

Open Streets 704 is made possible by a grant from the Knight Foundation, in partnership with Partners for Parks, Mecklenburg County Government, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation, the Mecklenburg County Public Health, Charlotte Department of Transportation, and the support of the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Police and Charlotte Fire departments.
