During Car-Free Sundays, road closures are implemented in parts of the civic and central business district (CBD) on the last Sunday of each month for a slew of activities to take place.

Co-organised by Sport Singapore, Urban Redevelopment Authority and several other statutory boards, every Car Free Sunday brings different activities but here are five things not to miss out on every Car Free Sunday.

Run and cycle freely

Who hasn't dreamt of running and cycling freely on the roads in the CBD? With road closures along some iconic routes, now you can. The current run of Car Free Sundays will also feature an expanded route to include the Telok Ayer conservation area.

Try out a new sport

Led by ActiveSG and its various sport academies, sports tryouts such as basketball, football, athletics and tennis are available for those who want to give it a go. Sometimes, there will also be other more novel sports like speedminton and tchoukball. It may even feature completely new sports and exercises that have not been seen in Singapore before such as bike polo and SaberFit.

Take part in mass workout sessions

Every Car-Free Sunday offers mass workouts where people of all ages can dance, jump and workout to catchy tunes. With contemporary dance workouts such as zumba and piloxing, you'll be spoilt for choice.

Build your own playground

For families with young children, the Imagination Playground is the place to be! Made up of many large blue foam blocks which are similar to Lego blocks, families and children can spend hours of fun building your own playground or fortress. Let your creativity run wild!

Have a Sunday morning picnic with family and friends

Take a break from the weekday hustle and come on down to Empress Lawn or Esplanade Park and just hang out and people watch!

Car-Free Sundays promise fun and family-friendly activities for people of all ages every month through till April 2017, with the exception of December 2016 due to New Year celebrations.
