Starting August 6, Mount Faber Loop will be turned into a car-free zone on the first Saturday of every month from 4 pm to 7 pm. ‘Let’s Lepak at Mount Faber’ is the first car-free event to be held in a park in Singapore and is aligned towards Singapore’s push to becoming a “car-lite” city. It will go on trial for three months till October.
Families will be encouraged to join in the evening of fun in the scenic setting of Mount Faber, 100-metres above the sea and surrounded by the forest, where they can shake to the beat of percussion performers, create models of cable cars from recycled materials and immerse in the artistic form of dance painting. There will also be a mass dance exercise class to get everyone moving and grooving at the peak of Mount Faber.
The car-free zone will be created along Mount Faber Loop’s 800m stretch of road, from Mount Faber Park Car Park D (near Danish Seamen’s Church) to the junction near Faber Bistro. The main road going up to Mount Faber from Kampong Bahru Road will remain open. Public car parks A, B and C will also remain open.
Admission to the event and activities is free.
