The first Car Free Day on the Albany Hwy cafe strip was hosted this October by the Vic Park Collective with support from the Town of Victoria Park. The day was a huge success with thousands of people enjoying a range of activities on the street without the burden of traffic.
Locals could enjoy a range of activities throughout the day including yoga, swing dancing and roller hockey to name a few. Businesses were also able to spill onto the street and enjoy the luxury of more space.
As the Day moved into night, more people came out to enjoy dinner and be entertained by street performers. People of all ages enjoyed the event with a steady flow of human traffic throughout the afternoon and evening.
The event was able to showcase how the street can be used differently if it was ever closed to traffic. With significant support from businesses and residents, the Town is keen to build momentum from the events success and demonstrate the benefits of less cars in our activity centres.
