Play Streets - e.g. Sunday Streets

Play Streets are streets that are temporarily converted into recreational space for all users. Activities can include anything from board games and jump rope, to basketball and face painting. In San Francisco, Sunday Streets is the most well-known example of Play Streets. But Play Streets can be local to your neighborhood as well.

Process Overview

Play Streets must be approved by the Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation (ISCOTT). ISCOTT meets twice a month to review temporary street closure permits for special events.

Temporary Street Closure Application

If you are planning a Play Street in your neighborhood, reach out to your neighbors early on in the process.
