Philly Free Streets

The City of Philadelphia is seeking public input and ideas for planning Philly Free Streets that will take place on Saturday, September 24th from 8 AM to 1 PM.  The event will temporarily close select City streets to vehicles so Philadelphians can socialize, bike, walk, dance, and play in our streets. The route will run from South Street at Front Street, to the beautiful Schuylkill River Trail, along Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, and into Fairmount Park.   This event promotes active, family-friendly, and healthy activities.  If you would, please complete this short survey: Philly Free Streets Survey.

Check out the map for this year’s route, and visit PhillyFreeStreets.com for more information.
