Rosario was the first Argentinean city to implement a weekly recreational circuit: every Sunday, from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm, you can walk, run, and ride your bike, skate or rollerblade along 17 miles free of cars, motorcycles and public transport.
Apart from providing a great place to meet up with friends, have fun, enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and practice physical activities, the circuit also works as a tourist spot itself, since it includes the traditional Independence Park, it goes through the small squares, palm trees and old mansions of Oroño Boulevard, and continues along Avenida de la Costa (Coastal Avenue) and Francia Av., until it reaches Sunchales and Scalabrini Ortiz Parks. The circuit also passes through other tourist spots, such as España Park, the emblematic National Flag Memorial and Yrigoyen Park, which holds a statue paying tribute to Ernesto Che Guevara.
Within the circuit, families can run, walk and use any kind of non-motorized transport. The circuit is open on Sundays, all year round.
Rosario, the first city of Argentina to implement a project of this nature, was also officially integrated into the Red de Ciclovías Recreativas de las Américas (Network of Recreational Bike Lanes of the Americas).

On the Recreational Street circuit, you can also find the inclusive program Blind Ride (Paseo a Ciegas).

These bikes are exclusive for the blind or people with reduced vision.
