City of Kerman
Run through hot lava, play the piano or challenge someone to a game of hopscotch at these interactive crosswalks in Kerman, California.
About the project
Kerman hasn't seen any park development since 1991. These creative crosswalks connect pedestrian traffic to the schools and neighborhood parks in the community. Each crosswalk is unique to the park and school that it is connected to, and sparks the imaginations of kids and adults alike.
The colorful crosswalks bring great pride to the community, especially those kids who were involved in the process of planning and painting them. Founded through a youth photo-voice project where kids identified areas in the city that they would like to see improved, Crosswalk Hop adds vibrancy to the community and encourages safety.
