Thousands Fill Car-Free Streets in Garden Grove
Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Saturday’s 3rd annual Open Streets event brought upwards of 15,000 walkers, bicyclists, skaters, and more to Garden Grove. Streets were closed to cars for nearly three miles to create a route for all forms of non-motorized active transportation.

“On April Fools’ Day, we took back our streets, and turned them into places for people to walk, bike, skate, and socialize with each other. Residents and visitors were able to experience Garden Grove in a whole new healthier way, and glimpse what the future of our city may look like,” said Mayor Steve Jones.
