On May 5 and 6, the 5th edition of Jane’s Walk will take place in the national capital region. More than 50 walking tours that highlight our heritage will be offered to people of the region. These walks, which are run by volunteers, are free for all participants. Good shoes are all you need to take part in these walks!
Jane’s Walk, an initiative established in 2007 by the group Imagine Ottawa, is a project of the Centre for Urban Ecology, which puts forward the ideas of urban planner and activist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) about cities. In reality, Jane's Walk is a pedestrian-focused event that improves urban literacy by offering insights into local history, planning, design, and civic commitment through the simple act of walking and observing.
Among the 12 walking tours given in French, the Vanier Museopark will offer four walking tours:
- May 5 at 11:30 am: Beechwood Avenue
- May 5 at 1 pm: Montréal Road
- May 6 at 11:30 am: McArthur Avenue
