On any other day, Ortigas Center’s Emerald Avenue in Pasig City would be teeming with cars that usually ply the business district’s thoroughfare. But on Sundays, cars are strictly off-limits as the city government turns Emerald Avenue into an “open public space” where people can walk, jog, ride their bikes, and even dance to Zumba.

The local government has launched the “Open Street Sundays” initiative where the 500-meter road will be open exclusively to pedestrians from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

Physical activities such as jogging, cycling, and zumba, as well as the use of light personal mobility devices will be allowed.

The Pasig City Public Information Office posted photos of people walking, running, riding their bicycles, and even taking their pets on a stroll.

Children and adults are welcome to use the space while following minimum public health protocols.

The Pasig LGU said that the “Open Street Sundays” initiative was a way to offer more “open spaces” to the public, where they can visit for free.
