Open Streets is coming to Washington Street in Langa for the first time this Sunday!
We've been working with Langa residents to create an Open Streets day that will be familiar to those who have been to previous Open Streets, but that will also be unique to this historic township. We had 450 residents at the recent public meeting - our biggest meeting ever - so this promises to be an exciting day.
From skateboarding, street cricket and boxing; to jazz, DJs and traditional dance, you are in for a special street experience.
What: Open Streets Langa
When: Sunday 29 March -12h00 to 17h00
Where: Rubusana Avenue, Jungle Walk & Washington Street
Open Streets is about experiencing our streets differently. Let's all go car-free and use public transport or cycle to get to Langa on Sunday (or do both; put your bike on the train!) To make this easier, there will be volunteers at Cape Town Central Station (at the tourism information kiosk) and Taxi Rank wearing an Open Streets Langa t-shirt. There will also be a group of organised cyclists departing from the CBD and going via Southern Suburbs, and another group riding from Khayelitsha. For those needing to drive (highly discouraged!) there will be a designated parking area at Langa High School, with signage from the Bhunga exit on the N2.
When you arrive in Langa you will have a chance to walk the streets freely and safely. It is a family day with activities for all ages. Make sure to bring sun screen, water and loads of energy to experience one of the most exciting places in Cape Town.
Also, don't forget to join the Open Streets Langa Facebook event page and to share it with all your friends.
See you on Sunday!
