Join SF Mayor Gavin Newsom, Shape Up SF, and our many partners for the exciting launch of Sunday Streets on August 31 and September 14! Sunday Streets brings 4.5 miles of open space to SF streets and creates a novel, fun play space for all.

Sunday Streets is anchored in two communities- Portsmouth Square in Chinatown, and Joe Lee Gym/Bayview Opera House in Bayview Hunters Point. These community centers will be connected by nearly five miles of open, car-free streets along Washington Street, the Embarcadero, Terry Francios Blvd. Illinois and 3rd Streets, with the route lined with activities for all to enjoy.

Come out and skip, skate, run, bike, stroll and sample different kinds of physical activity along the way. Organized activities include yoga, roller skating and skating lessons, biking and bike repair, dancing, stretching, guided walking tours, Tai Chi, Boot Camp classes and much more! All activities are free of charge, presented by nearly 100 health, fitness, youth and family oriented organizations.

Actually we try something similar in Germany and it really works to change peoples minds. At the end of the day there is no alternative to change our entire behavior to protect our planet and to ensure that the future will be worth living. Keep on changing!
