Streets form the largest portion of the available public spaces in a city; and so, they must incorporate elements which help make them more accessible and safe for all ages and their wide range of activities.
The above video showcases when public is given spaces it generates different activities and the streets become more vibrant and active.

Memories from the streets ————————————
Parents teaching their child to cycle. It has always been an important activity followed through generations, which builds a healthy parent-child relationship, now has become a rare view to find in Urban cities.
The wide footpath acts as an oasis of sorts. Otherwise, spaces to make such memorable moments are shrinking rapidly, to be replaced with parking.
