Open streets is all about being acitive and bringing the community together. It provides a space for you to walk, bike, skate, dance, play, and socialize with neighbors to increase your activity and improve your health. Leave the car in the garage, and bike, job, walk or skate down to Campus Corner. Bring the whole family, including the dogs, and help us turn Campus Corner into a paved park. There will be booths sponsored by Norman businesses, schools, churches and non-profits as teh community unites for a healthy cause.
