Alki Seattle Summer Streets: Enjoy Your Street to the Fullest

Walk. Bike. Shop. Play. Breathe. On Sunday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Alki Avenue SW from California Way SW to 63rd Avenue SW is being opened up to pedestrians and cyclists. West Seattle High School PTSA and the Cascade Bicycle Club have partnered with the city to make this a great event.

We’re also looking for volunteers. Enjoy the sun and talk to neighbors while helping us keep people safe on your block and throughout the event. Email Summer.Streets@Seattle.gov to sign up.

What’s Happening
