Community Partners for Open Streets

September 22, 2019 

Why Open Streets Windsor needs Community Partners

Open Streets Windsor is more than providing a space for people to walk, cycle, roller blade, etc. It is about engaging the community!

The Open Streets Windsor route includes eight designated activity hubs. The hubs are designated for individuals, businesses and organizations to animate the spaces with community-led, interactive activities - things like exercise, street games, obstacle courses, neighbourhood tours, dance classes, samples, musical performances, art installations and more. The possibilities are endless and that’s where you come in!

Be a part of something amazing!

Open Streets is the largest free recreation program in the city's history. With an average 10,000 people participating annually in Open Streets Windsor, it is a great way to introduce your organization or brand to a large and diverse audience in a fun setting!

Activities must be free and encourage the greatest possible participation from people of all ages and abilities.  

Please fill out an activity form proposal to let us know what you have in mind. Looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Be free
