DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Seven miles of streets in downtown Los Angeles were closed to vehicles Sunday due to another CicLAvia event where city officials encourage residents to walk or use other non-motorized transportation to explore what different neighborhoods have to offer.
CicLAvia-Heart of LA took place Sunday from 9am to 4pm and is located at a Grand Park hub where activities include live music and theater, art installations, arts and crafts, pop-up shops, yoga classes, and family and Children’s events include activities.
Other hubs include Echo Park, Mariachi Plaza, Chinatown, and Sixth Street.
Motorized vehicles are prohibited, but persons may walk, bike, ice skate, or otherwise navigate the route. Only personal-powered devices are allowed – no electric vehicles such as scooters or hoverboards.
At 8:30 am, a kick-off press conference was held in Grand Park with remarks from Mayor Eric Garcetti, Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Los Angeles, and other officials.
CicLAvia events have been held throughout Los Angeles since 2010. They aim to reconnect residents with their neighbors and the community while supporting local businesses and promoting healthy outdoor activities.
The final CicLAvia of 2022 is scheduled for December 4th in South Los Angeles.
