Jane Jacobs called Toronto home, and so do we. Here, in our city of many distinct neighbourhoods and diverse cultures, we keep her legacy alive by walking together and making space for every person to observe, reflect, share, question and collectively re-imagine the places around us.
About Jane’s Walks
Jane’s Walks are free, locally organized walking tours, in which people get together to explore, talk about and celebrate their neighbourhoods. Where more traditional tours are a bit like walking lectures, a Jane’s Walk is more of a walking conversation. Leaders share their knowledge, but also encourage discussion and participation among the walkers.
A Jane’s Walk can focus on almost any aspect of a neighbourhood, and on almost any topic you can think of.Walks can be serious or funny, informative or exploratory; they can look at the history of a place, or at what’s happening there right now. Anyone can lead a walk — because everyone is an expert on the place where they live!
