Sunday Streets is San Francisco’s open streets program, run by the nonprofit Livable City and presented in partnership with the SFMTA, San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the City and County of San Francisco.
The annual season of Sunday Streets events reclaim car-congested streets for community health, transforming them into car-free spaces for all to enjoy. Routes are 1-4 miles in length, with fun, free activities provided by local nonprofits, community groups and small businesses.
Sunday Streets’ mission is to:
- Create temporary open space and recreational opportunities in neighborhoods most lacking
- Encourage physical activity
- Foster community-building
- Inspire people to think about their streets as public spaces
