Wilmington CicLAvia CicLAmini – Open Thread

Yesterday, the Los Angeles City harbor neighborhood of Wilmington hosted a CicLAmini open streets festival, closing two and a quarter miles of streets to drivers, and opening them to people on foot, bike, skates, and scooters.

The route was mainly on Avalon Boulevard, with spurs on M Street and C Street connecting to hubs at Banning Park and Wilmington Waterfront Park, respectively.

While CicLAminis are drawing somewhat smaller crowds than 4-5+ mile full CicLAvia routes, plenty of Angelenos, mostly on bike, flocked to Wilmington streets yesterday.

Hubs at each end - and restaurants along the way - were crowded. Lots of people spilled onto Avalon Boulevard around Wilmington Town Square Park, which hosted musical performances and vending booths.

Streetsblog also visited the newly opened Wilmington Waterfront Promenade, located just south of the route. The Port of L.A.'s new 9-acre park opened in February, and is planned to connect to Wilmington Waterfront Park soon, via a future bike/walk bridge that recently received federal funding. (The new promenade is currently accessible via Avalon Boulevard.)
