neighbourhoods with the 11th annual Jane’s Walk, an initiative that supports the growth of strong and resourceful communities through walking. Jane’s Walk leaders will be hosting walks this Friday at City Hall to kick off the weekend of walking, talking and learning more about the place we call home.

Date: Friday, May 5, 2017
Time: Noon - 1:30 p.m.
Location: Edmonton City Hall, 1 Sir Winston Churchill Square (South steps, under the clock tower.)

Jane’s Walk takes place May 5-8 in cities throughout the world. Created in 2007 in Toronto by friends of the urban thinker, Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walk is a series of free, volunteer-led urban walks. With over 500 cities taking part in last year’s 10th anniversary, Jane’s Walk has become an international activity for participants of all ages to continue to share their stories and get involved.

The City of Edmonton’s series of Jane’s Walks are organized by Walk Edmonton, an initiative that promotes walking in neighbourhoods, parks, trails, and business districts, for all ages.
