Reclaim Camissa, meaning 'place of sweet water', is a project established to create awareness of the potential of water to spatially reconnect the city while at the same time tap into a sustainable and ecological water supply. The Reclaim Camissa tour follows, various routes of the natural dual water system – including the Vaarsche River, one of the historic and forgotten water systems of Cape Town. By following these water routes, participants are exposed to a range of tales relating to the historical meanings that these water sources held for Cape Town inhabitants.
Route follows the points:
1. Start/Finish – Cape Town City hall to Deer Park
2. From the boom in Deer Park, we walk uphill to De Grendel.
3. We then commence our descent, as per the water, following the path of least resistance – past the following points:
Lower Platteklip Waterfall // Platteklip Dam and its infrastructure // Kramat of Seyed Haq al Quaderi // (Bio) slow sand filter // Platteklip Mill; the wash houses and Raaswater // The old Oranjezicht Farmstead
The Stadtsfontein and Field of Springs // Molteno Reservoir and Graaff's Hydro-Electric // Zorgvliet and the Hurling Swaai-Pump // Waterhof Spring // The Lower Reservoirs // The Company Gardens and

    Accessing the City

> Sunday 16 September (13h30-16h30)
> Meet at 13h30 in the foyer entrance of the City Hall
> Cost – R200 incl VAT

This tour of Cape Town is specifically organized so that participants experience various different ways of getting around the city using public transport. We begin at the newly refurbished Cape Town Station where each participant is given a bicycle courtesy of the Bicycle Empowerment Network (BEN). We then head off to the Green Point Park and Cape Town Stadium for a leisurely walk and talk by one of the designers of the Stadium and park and then head back to the City Hall using the My City bus.
This tour will aim to highlight and reflect on the way in which public transport can transcend its purpose of merely getting from point 'A' to 'B' and how good design can turn it into a strategy in making the city more accessible for all its citizens.
Route:
1. Start/Finish – Cape Town City hall to Cape Town Station
2. Collect bicycles at Cape Town Station, ride towards V&A Waterfront
3. Drop off bicycles at Greenpoint roundabout
