Jane’s Walks are free neighbourhood walks led by local volunteers. The walks can focus on local history, architecture, heritage, culture or anything else. According to the website, the walks “get people to explore their cities and connect with neighbours.”
There is an annual global festival during the first week of May (with walks all around the world) to celebrate the birthday of Jane Jacobs, an activist and writer on urban planning.
