Launch of 'Let's Lepak' at Mount Faber
Starting August 6, Mount Faber Loop will be turned into a car-free zone on the first Saturday of every month from 4pm-7pm. ‘Let’s Lepak at Mount Faber’ is the first car-free event to be held in a park in Singapore and will go on trial for three months till October.
Organised by Mount Faber Leisure Group through the ‘Streets for People’2 initiative, and supported by NParks, ‘Let’s Lepak at Mount Faber’ is aligned towards Singapore’s push to become a “car-lite” city.
Curated by partners ActiveSG and LopeLab, the inaugural event on 6 August is also part of the GetActive! Singapore campaign, and will showcase activities relating to the theme of Sports and Wellness, coupled with music and art elements. Admission to the event and activities is free.
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.
Suzanne Ho, General Manager of Mount Faber Leisure Group said, “We invite the public to come out and play, and Lepak together at Mount Faber this National Day. There will many Instagram-worthy poses to snap, up here on the hill, as you bond and make memories with your family and friends. We reckon it will be nostalgic, too, for the couples who are back to revisit one of Singapore’s oldest parks.”
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.
Visitors can opt to ‘fly’ to the park in the Singapore Cable Car3 and they would have to connect from Harbourfront MRT to the cable car station at Harbourfront Tower 2, for the cable car ride to Mount Faber Station located in Faber Peak. Mount Faber Loop is a 3-minute walk from Faber Peak. Alternatively, the public can take a scenic walk across Henderson Waves to Mount Faber Loop.
