“Taking back our streets”
This was just one of the sentiments that were echoed by the young people who attended Sunday’s event.
“Thousands of people embarked on Eisleben Road in Mitchell’s Plain to participate in the 2018 Mitchell’s Plain Open Streets.
Open Streets Day is a collaborative effort between the City’s Transport and Urban Development Authority and the NGO called Open Streets Cape Town. The concept involves closing off a major street in the city for a single day to enable people to use the space on foot or any non-motorised form of transport.
It was a day of fun and laughter for young and old who came together from all over Mitchell’s Plain as well as the surrounding areas.
