#ItsYourSpace #CarFree #StreetsForPeople
Open Streets aims to create shared spaces that help bridge the social and spatial divides in Cape Town, and encourage us all to think differently about how we move around the city. Along with local partners in Bellville, the Greater Tygerberg Partnership and Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District, we are excited to explore all that the area has to offer...

WHAT IS OPEN STREETS?
Open Streets Days are a local programme inspired by Colombia’s Ciclovía. The concept is to close down a street temporarily so that it becomes car-free. It’s a chance for people to reclaim streets as public space, for walking, cycling, skating, playing, exploring and general socialising. Open Streets suspends reality and allows us to imagine a new “normal” for our streets. Watch a short video here: https://youtu.be/
