A Play Street is a city street temporarily closed to traffic to provide a safe place for children, their families, and neighbors to come together and play outside. Play Streets are fun events that build local community and make use of public space in areas where parks may be limited. Play Streets are recurring and are hosted by schools, community groups, or neighbors. Play Streets launched a pilot program in 2017, featuring a series of Play Streets hosted by local organizations. The program is being led by San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, San Francisco Planning Department, and San Francisco Department of Public Health along with other partners.
