About

On Sunday, September 30th, Hood River will experience our first open streets event called Streets Alive, in The Heights. Between 11am and 3pm, we’ll close some lanes of 12th and 13th Streets in the business district and softly close a few neighborhood streets east of 12th to create a route that is safe for all ages and abilities to stroll, roll, play, dance or simply talk to your neighbors.

FREE

The 4 hour event is free for everyone. We encourage you to grab food or drinks from local businesses along the route.

Did we mention this? Streets Alive is intended to be a gift to the city’s residents.


ROUTE

The route is circular so join in at any point. There is no beginning or end and it’s all two-way biking and walking. We designed it so you could let your 8 year old ride by themselves and you could rest knowing they were safe. This is a casual event, so embrace the “slow roll” and take in the neighborhood.


OPEN STREETS

Open Streets means that people come first and cars are a guest on the street. Use this opportunity to bike, walk, draw chalk art or play kick the can in the street (the way it used to be).


If you live within a mile, bike or walk to the route. If you live further, take a CAT Transit bus. Details for both options are below.

Biking Routes from:

  • May Street (west) - bike south on 18th and then a left on Taylor to access the protected bike lane loop at 13th.

  • Belmont Street - ride to 18th and then take a left and a right onto C, which will deposit you onto the protected bike lane loop on 13th.

  • Downtown - either Serpentine or State/Sherman/17th present the least slope routes, but if you have kids, you’ll probably have to walk at a few points.

  • Rosauer’s - ride on the sidewalk on the east side of 12th to the protected bike lane loop at C/Wilson.

Walking Routes from:

  • Downtown - make the journey into exercise and take the 2nd Street (419 steps for pedometer users) or 9th Street Stairs to The Heights.

  • Eastern Heights - we’ll create safe crossings across 13th and 12th at Taylor and C Streets

  • Pacific Heights - take the Indian Creek Trail either from the new access point or near Dutch Bros. to the power substation and into the neighborhood. Or, take the sidewalk from Dutch Bros. along 12th Street.

Parking

Providence Hospital has graciously donated their parking garage on May Street for free event parking.

If you have to drive to the event and choose to park in a neighborhood, please use extreme car in opening your car doors as there will be a lot of people on bikes (including littles) in the streets and we don’t want anyone “doored”.
