Oaklavia

Oaklavía (pronounced ohk-la-VEE-ah) is Oakland’s Open Streets Initiative modeled after “Ciclovia”, which originated in Bogotá, Colombia.  It is a movement that has spread around the world from Tokyo to Kiev, and to cities throughout the US as a day to enjoy free health- and community-oriented events on city streets temporarily closed to auto traffic.

Open street events such as Oaklavía offer a way to support local businesses, provide a space for safe and comfortable exercise and a chance for community members to experience their city in a new and unique way. Since 2010, WOBO has brought Oaklavia to neighborhoods surrounding Downtown, Uptown, Emeryville, and Lake Merritt.  2016 featured two open streets:
  1. Love Our Neighborhood Day, Saturday June 4, 2016 – Golden Gate neighborhood in North Oakland will once again take over San Pablo Avenue
  2. Berkeley Sunday Streets, Sunday October 23, 2016 – Cycling, strolling, dancing and playing on Shattuck Avenue from Rose to Haste
