New Arbor Glen Bike Playground
Dick Winters, Mecklenburg County Health’s Built Environment & Safe Routes to School Coordinator and Learn to Ride co-founder (and BPWG public health representative), has worked tirelessly over the past year to find a suitable location and best possible design for a Bike Playground within the county. That effort recently paid off with the opening of the Bike Playground at the Arbor Glen Recreation Center! It’s an excellent facility which provides a safe environment for children (and adults) to learn how to ride a bicycle safely.

The 3rd installment of Charlotte’s wildly successful OpenStreets704 was Sunday, May 7, 2017!
This bicyclist and pedestrian focused event will “…open a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people! Taking cues from similar events around the country and the world, Open Streets 704 aims to build a better, healthier, connected community by encouraging Charlotte and Mecklenburg area residents to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.”
