SINGAPORE — The second edition of car-free Sunday in the Civic District and parts of the Central Business District will be happening this weekend, with extended hours and new activities to transform the area into a giant recreational space.

Roads will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7.30am to 10am instead of the 7am-to-9am period as in the first edition on Feb 28, which attracted thousands who turned up to exercise and enjoy the space. The walking, running and cycling route will be expanded to include Esplanade Drive, to form a 5km car-free stretch along St Andrew’s Road, Stamford Road, Fullerton Road, Shenton Way and Robinson Road.

Apart from free entry to museums, sports activities, street performances and guided heritage tours, this round of the event will also feature an arts and gardening bazaar from 8am to 6pm, as well as open-mike sessions from 3pm to 6pm for aspiring musicians, singers and dancers at Esplanade Park.

The National Gallery Singapore will host a one-hour yoga session from 9.10am, followed by an Easter egg hunt from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

Car-free Sunday will happen every last Sunday of the month until July. Participants are encouraged to take public transport or cycle to the venue. Personal mobility devices, including motorised versions, are allowed. More details are available online at http://ura.sg/carfreesundaysg.
