Upcoming Car-Free Sunday dates: 28 January, 25 March, May, July, October and December 2018
Car-Free Sunday SG will be back this Sunday, 28 January for a third run – proudly supported by a growing group of passionate corporate and community partners under the Friends of Car-Free Sunday SG Network.
Kicking off the first Car-Free Sunday of the year, the Civic District and Telok Ayer Conservation Area will again be transformed into a car-free and activity-filled precinct for everyone to enjoy.
From 8am to noon, with 5.5km of roads closed to traffic, the public can walk, jog, and cycle around the area and participate in an exciting range of outdoor activities, such as line dancing, hula hoop clinics, floorball and Zumba. There will also be a number of cultural activities and walking tours to take part in.
Car-Free Sunday SG turns part of our city into a pedestrian and cyclist friendly precinct and creates a 5.5 km route of closed roads in the heart of the city. It is part of the larger movement towards a car-lite Singapore, envisioning our city with fewer cars.
Car-Free Sunday SG takes place on the last Sunday of every month, with exciting line-ups of activities for each edition!
