Enhancing community connections in Cincinnati, by reclaiming alleys, sidewalks, and steps for the pedestrian.
Spring in Our Steps is embarking on an ambitious mission to cleanup, beautify, and program every alley in Cincinnati’s beautiful Northside neighborhood. Northside currently has around 25 public alleys. We will begin aLLies for aLLeys at Pope Alley, Armour Alley, and Medill Alley…with all hands on deck!
Between the Northside Rock ‘N Roll Carnival (July 3-5) weekend and Cincy Summer Streets (August 24th), we will cleanup and program Pope, Armour, and Medill Alleys. Pope and Medill Alleys lead from Northside Business District along Hamilton Avenue into the heart of Northside residential areas to the southeast. Each alley site will be programmed and celebrated for their unique opportunities to provide additional public venues and paths in the community.
We hope to see you at any of the following cleanup and event dates!
