play streets

A play street permit temporarily closes a neighborhood street to through traffic so that kids (and adults) can have more space for play and physical activity. This free permit allows applicants to open the street up for play one time or regularly throughout the year.

Play streets can happen anywhere in the city as long as they:

  • Aren’t on an arterial street
  • Keep the intersections open
  • Don’t have a bus stop on the block

See the Play Streets website and handbook for more detailed information.

Play Streets are primarily permitted on non-arterial neighborhood streets: Neighborhood Yield and Neighborhood Curbless Streets.
