Open Streets Corvallis
A free street festival that encourages active transportation and engages the community to create spaces where people want to walk, bike and play
Imagine our city streets as active community spaces in a fun, car-free environment.
placemaking & fun
People make our neighborhood spaces vibrant and alive! Our vision is to include everyone in developing the best elements of our transportation culture by giving them an active role in creating safe streets where people want to bike, walk and play.
Neighbors, organizations and businesses are invited to host an activity on the mile-long route. Chalk out a foursquare court, set up a ping-pong table, create a shady oasis - the possibilities are endless! (Sign up below.)

Neighborhood greenways are residential streets with low volumes of auto traffic and low speeds where bicycles and pedestrians are given priority. Traffic calming techniques, such as speed bumps and traffic diverters, are commonly used to keep people from using neighborhood greenways as automobile cut-through routes,
