June 23 Redmond’s BPAC to Host Inaugural Open Streets Event
REDMOND, OR – Grab your bicycle, scooter, skateboard, unicycle or your other favorite means of human powered transport and join in the fun at Redmond Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee’s (BPAC) inaugural Redmond Open Streets event on Saturday, June 23 from Noon to 4:00 p.m. The event will be hosted on Deschutes Ave. between 6th and 15th streets in downtown Redmond.
Deschutes Ave. will be closed to vehicles for six blocks during this FREE event and opened to folks to Bike, Walk, or Roll back and forth in a safe environment and enjoy family friendly activities along the way; including lawn games, basketball, musicians, walking story books with local librarians, bicycle games and races, and test your bike speed against the police department’s radar. Learn about current and planned bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the City, including the Homestead Canal Trail, the newly constructed Deschutes Ave. Quiet Street, and find out what those painted green boxes at 5th and 6th Street are all about.
At Redmond Open Streets, you will get some exercise, discover your public spaces, see neighbors and friends, and have some fun. The Redmond Street Fair on 6th Street downtown occurs on the same day, immediately adjacent to this event, so come on down and visit both events!
