Enjoy Car-Free Fun and Exercise on May 1;
Walk, Run, Bike, or Dance to Streets Alive 2011
Foster City, CA; April 6, 2011 – Residents are invited to enjoy Foster City parks, the levee/pedway, and Leo Ryan Park Amphitheater by taking part in a movement that is sweeping the world on Sunday, May 1.
You are invited to enjoy your community in a new way and participate in Streets Alive on Sunday, May 1. That is the day people across San Mateo County will park their cars and enjoy walking, running, rolling and dancing in public places like streets and parks.
Streets Alive is part of a worldwide movement to turn busy streets into car-free places for fun and exercise. Cities from South America to Northern Europe are turning busy streets into safe streets. Now it’s our turn!
It is Foster City’s second year participating in Streets Alive, but the vision is limitless in terms of the social and physical benefits. We can really transform our local communities by integrating this kind of activity into a new tradition -- moving from an annual event to regular and habitual community activity.
Foster City Streets Alive will consist of the following:
- Free, fun bootcamp workout by FFIT at the Leo Ryan Park Amphitheater, 10am
- Free, energizing Bollywood Dance workout by Fusion Beatz at the Leo Ryan Park Amphitheater, 11am
- Information on the 100 Year Lifestyle and posture checks by Dr. Rebecca Wilson will be available at the Leo Ryan Park Amphitheater, 10am
- Distribution of levee safety and courtesy information and Sea Cloud Park Walking Map by the Parks and Recreation Committee on the levee at Foster City Boulevard and Beach Park Boulevard, 10am
- Walking maps for each Foster City neighborhood will be available at the Recreation Center beginning April 6th so you can plan your routes to your local parks in participation of Streets Alive
