Here’s a car-free event you can look forward to at Serangoon Gardens!

SUSTAINABILITY SUNDAY is a community-led road closure initiative to re-imagine Serangoon Gardens as a pedestrian-friendly zone minus the incessant traffic on the first Sunday of March.

Experience the transformation of Farleigh Avenue Carpark (in front of HSBC) into a public street festival space, bustling with activities and workshops to promote sustainable living. Slow down your pace and relax at the chillout area with your loved ones or take the opportunity to catch up with your neighbours and make new friends from the local Serangoon Gardens community over a round of street game or two.

Sustainability Sunday is organised by the residents of Serangoon Gardens under the Streets for People Programme and supported by the amazing event partners and sponsors listed below. Streets for People is a programme by the Urban Redevelopment Authority that supports community-initiated projects to transform our streets into meaningful public spaces.

This event is FREE, OPEN TO ALL and NOT-FOR-PROFIT.
