Crowds gathered Sunday at an open air pedestrian market in Jamaica Plain on Sunday.

Open Streets, which was open between 9a.m. and 3p.m., runs from Jackson Square to Centre and South Street. The area remains open only to walkers, bicyclists, and roller skaters.

There are a number of temporary parking regulations and road diversions to ensure safety in the area. Tow trucks were seen early Sunday morning enforcing parking bans.

The city urged people to rent blue bikes or take the MBTA to avoid major congestion.

Come Sunday busy Centre Street in Jamaica Plain will become a pedestrian mall for almost a mile and a half.

Jason Gregoricus, who heads the JP Business and Professional Association, says many in the area are looking forward to the event.

"It is magnificent and we embrace it fully and if you don't embrace it then there's something terribly wrong with you," said Gregoricus.
