Bike Walk Play JPA Event Helps Connect Community Members
Information and activity booths were also set up for neighbors to enjoy.
A Charlottesville neighborhood closed down a street for several hours Saturday morning to get the community up and moving.
A section of Jefferson Park Avenue Extended was shut down for the second annual Bike Walk Play JPA event. Organizers say the idea is a unique way to connect people to each other, the location, and the different businesses and organizations along the road.
"Even though a lot of people may drive up and down this street, actually walking it, running into their neighbors, being able to say hi and just take their time was a completely different experience for them, that was really unique and also special," said co-organizer Susan Elliott.
Information and activity booths were also set up for neighbors to enjoy and to help people in the Fry Springs area learn more about their community.
