On Wednesday, September 22, 2010 Winnipeg joined thousands of cities all over the world by closing part of our territory to car traffic for Car Free Day. It was a rainy day, but a good time was had by all. Congratulations to William Belford, winner of the Track Stand Competition, and thanks to Urban Eatin’ Gardeners Coop for creating a beautiful temporary green-space out of a parking spot. We hope you will join us in 2011!

Car Free Day is an international celebration held every September 22 to highlight the environmental, health and economic benefits of alternative modes of transportation. Green Action Centre thanks the City of Winnipeg and participating businesses in Winnipeg’s Exchange District for support with the 2010 event.
