The 8th annual Summer Streets will take place on Saturdays, August 1st, 8th, and 15th, from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day.

During Summer Streets, Park Avenue is closed to traffic from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park and the streets are filled with free activities for all ages. It’s a fun way to get out and try some new activities. There’s a soccer zone, a dog park, self-guided public art and architecture tours, a zip-line, fitness classes, bike safety activities, Parkour lessons, interactive arts and crafts, and bike and rollerblade rentals. Plus, the big new attraction for this year is the 270 foot long “Slide the City” water slide.
