Explore Downtown San Luis Obispo
Downtown SLO is open and ready for business, while providing a safe and comfortable environment for all visitors. The City of San Luis Obispo has approved a program called Open SLO that allows for the expanded use of city streets and public spaces to help support the economic recovery of local businesses and provide additional opportunities for responsible physical distancing within the community. Open SLO includes a variety of strategies, including temporary street closures within the downtown to allow local restaurants and retailers to expand their footprints into the street, use of Mission Plaza and other city-owned spaces for take-out dining downtown, addition of parklets to expand sidewalk space, and other quick-build strategies to improve safety and access for residents jogging, bicycling and strolling in their neighborhoods. Open SLO activities are an inclusive environment and ALL community members are welcome.
