    Candler Park Conservancy plans to participate in the Atlanta Streets Alive - Cross-City event organized by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. From Atlanta Bicycle Coalition:

    "Biking down DeKalb Avenue during Atlanta Streets Alive - Eastside this year was eye-opening for a lot of people. Over and over, participants shared how the experience sparked their realization of what a useful route this would be if it were safe and accessible for walking and biking. In its first year of connecting neighborhoods along Marietta Street and Howell Mill Road, Atlanta Streets Alive - Westside had a similar impact. Residents thanked us for allowing them to have a peaceful moment next to the Water Works Reservoir rather than being stuck in their cars, feeling stressed and anxious about traffic.

    Atlanta’s cultural shift from car-centric to people-powered is starting to reflect in its street design. During the 2018 Westside street activation, we held a ribbon cutting with the City of Atlanta for the Marietta Street improvements, including bike lanes on the stretch north of Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard. Meanwhile, for DeKalb Avenue, plans to extend the multi-use trail that currently ends at Rocky Ford Road and remove the reversible lane are advancing. The type of safe access for people outside of cars that Atlanta Streets Alive allowed us all to experience and envision on this corridor is taking shape.

    You probably noticed these two routes (and all our 2018 routes) met in the middle, at Five Points -- intentionally connecting neighborhoods and business districts to the heart of Atlanta. But, have you ever tried to get across town, from East Lake to the West Midtown district?

    That’s why, on Sunday, June 9, we’ll combine our Eastside and Westside routes into one slightly audacious and delightfully cohesive Atlanta Streets Alive - Cross-City.

    But, wait. There’s even more in store for our June activation! Not to miss out on the fun and connectivity, the City of Decatur will launch its first open streets by adding West Howard Avenue to the mix, bringing the newest addition to the Atlanta Streets Alive lineup to almost 10 miles. You’ll be able to roll or walk all the way from Underwood Hills to Decatur! We’re going to need more time for this one, so we’re extending it to six hours of open streets, from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm."
