The city of Chicago is closing down some streets so children can play on them.

PlayStreets is a city-run program designed to encourage children to be active outside. PlayStreets are held during scheduled hours in neighborhoods where there isn't a lot of green space.

The event is offered at six locations through November. Click here to get the list.
