'Circle the City' Finale to Close Rose Kennedy Greenway Area to Traffic on Sunday
The 'Circle the City' series of summer street closures concludes Sunday, turning parts of State, Congress and the surface road along the Greenway into traffic-free pedestrian and bike havens.
The city's program of closing major streets off to traffic on summer Sundays comes to a close this weekend with the biggest event yet: Parts of State, Congress and the surface road along the Rose Kennedy Greenway will be car-free zones.
The "Circle the City" initiative provides free outdoor fun, and is a collaboration between local organizations to connect people to parks and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. The Emerald Necklace Conservancy, the Boston Collaborative for Food and Fitness, LivableStreets Alliance, Franklin Park Coalition, the City of Boston, Boston Bikes, the EPA and the Rose Kennedy Greenway launched the program on June 24, and the final event is Sunday.
Sunday's event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Previous events had been in Jamaica Plain and Franklin Park.
Like previous events, Sunday's will include free live performances, outdoor fitness, dance and yoga classes, Farmer’s Markets, bike clinics, children’s activities, culinary demonstrations, roller skating, hula hooping, and much more.
