The City Walk is a collaborative community placemaking project facilitated by the Cape Town Partnership.

Starting in the Company’s Gardens, continuing down St George’s Mall to Waterkant Street, and progressing up the Fan Walk to St Andrew’s Square, the City Walk connects significant places and offerings in the urban heart of Cape Town through storytelling, wayfinding, public art, walking tours and retail offerings to bring our public spaces to life.

Project lead: Mike Purdham

People who make this work possible: City of Cape Town, CCID
