**A note about Viva Streets: After three years of co-hosting Viva Streets with Bike Denver, LiveWell Colorado is shifting our attention toward assisting other communities across Colorado who want to create their own "take over the streets" movement by sharing our experiences. Viva the Streets Colorado!**
For five hours, we created a car-free parkway (or "ciclovia") for all Denverites to enjoy in the Berkeley Regis neighborhood on Tennyson St. and W. 46th Ave.
The goal of Viva Streets is to introduce the public to the many benefits that come from increased walking and biking in our local communities, and highlight safe and active transportation.
Viva Streets has been a tremendous success for the past two years in the Park Hill area of Denver, bringing together more than 10,000 people as we celebrated our City streets’ potential to get people moving and to strengthen Colorado’s healthy, active culture. Closed to cars, the streets came alive with walkers, bikers, runner, strollers, hula-hoopers, dancers, paraders, musicians, healthy food purveyors and others who wanted to play in the streets for the day.
