On Sunday 2 April 2017, from 12h00 to 17h00, Mitchells Plain will host an Open Streets Day to end off the 2016-17 series that has taken place thus far in Langa, Bellville and the City Centre. This car-free celebration of public space, which is free and open to everyone, will enable residents and visitors alike to use the street to walk, cycle, skate, play or perform – as they did in April 2016 at the first successful ‘Open Streets Mitchells Plain.’
We invite all residents in Mitchells Plain and those who would like to get involved to an open Q&A session. This will be a chance to hear about the plans for the day, ask questions, voice concerns and help make sure that it will be a success.

The aim of Open Streets is to create an urban playground/park for all ages to enjoy a healthy recreational space and explore how streets can be maximised for the benefit of all users, not just motorists. We are working in partnership with the City of Cape Town’s Transport & Urban Development Authority (TDA) to develop a regular Open Streets programme across the city.
