The Annual Beautiful City Community Clean-Up Day will take place this Saturday, May 15 between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. Forty groups have registered for the event, with the purpose to improve neighborhoods and public spaces by collecting trash and debris, planting flowers, updating landscaping, starting a community garden, and other beautification projects. 

The first in a series of Open Streets Wilmington events will be held Saturday afternoon on Market Street in Downtown Wilmington. The street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 4th through 10th streets between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Open Streets creates a safe, car-free environment for residents of all ages and abilities to enjoy time outside walking, biking, and more. 

Most of Market Street will be closed off to traffic for this special day so residents can enjoy a healthy slate of activities, including:

  • Outdoor fitness classes, children’s activities, and information provided by the YMCA
  • Free bicycle repairs provided by Urban Bike Project
  • Cooking demos and free giveaways of recipe cards and ingredient kits provided by the Food Bank of Delaware
  • 1st and 2nd doses of the Pfizer COVID vaccine and COVID PCR testing provided by CarePortMD
  • First Aid and CPR informational tent provided by St. Francis Healthcare

Open Streets Wilmington is a collaborative initiative of Urban Bike Project, West Side Grows Together, and the Open Streets Steering Committee, a coalition of community representatives. Open Streets Wilmington is also presented by HighMark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware through their grant fund Blueprints for the Community.
