Siclovia: Spring 2013

Siclovia experienced a great turnout of families, dogs, adults and teens. The City closed Broadway to motorized vehicles from Alamo Plaza to Mulberry Street for five hours on Sunday, April 7. Participants at the free event were able to move freely in the street and participate in fun exercise activities in parks and parking lots along the route. Participants used many different types of wheeled transportation including a variety of bicycles, skateboards, unicycles, tricycles, scooters and a few contraptions that were new to me. Reclovia stops along Broadway included a yoga class, an aerobics dance class, bands, information booths and children’s activities. The next Siclovia is September 29, 2013.

Sunny afternoon at the dog park

The McAllister Dog Park is located near the Starcrest entrance to the park.  The park consists of approximately1.5 acres of fenced land with exercise equipment, a covered picnic area, benches, and a walking trail.  We usually let our dogs run free inside the fenced area although many dogs are on leashes.  It takes a little while to walk from the parking lot to the fenced area.  However,  there are nice open fields on either side of the walk.  The park is open 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.  However, I wouldn’t come here after dark since there aren’t any lights and it’s rather isolated.  There is a water fountain and you can bring a bowl to provide water to your dog.
