What is Jane's Walk?

Jane's Walk is a weekend festival of free neighbourhood walking tours led by locals who care passionately about where they live, work and play. Jane's Walk is a pedestrian-focused event that improves urban literacy by offering insights into local history, planning, design, and civic engagement through the simple act of walking and observing.  more

"No one can find out what will work for our cities by looking at garden suburbs, manipulating scale models, or inventing dream cities. You've got to get out and walk.
— Jane Jacobs, "Downtown is for People", The Exploding Metropolis, 1957.

"I like walking because in cars you can't see very much and can't get a close look at things. When you walk, you can say 'stop' and then look."
— Jane's Walk participant S.B., age 6.
