Viva CalleSJ is still rolling in 2017! Today, the City of San José’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) officially announced that the third installment of Viva CalleSJ, the Open Streets program that last year brought nearly 100,000 residents out to walk, bike, skate and play, will return on Sunday, September 17, 2017.
Pronounced “Vee-Va Ka-Ye Es-Jay,” the popular program opens up miles of San José’s City streets, converting them into a vibrant park where participants can explore some of San José’s rich and vibrant neighborhoods stretching through some of San José's diverse neighborhoods and business corridors. For this year’s program, residents can expect a new route, providing different neighborhoods and businesses to discover and explore. The 2017 route will be formally announced as part of National Bike Month in May 2017.
The program is led by PRNS, with outreach support from Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and funding generously provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Santa Clara County Public Health Department and Youth Connections Foundation. The latest program details can be found at www.vivacallesj.org.
