Jane’s Walk is named after Jane Jacobs, an urban activist and writer who lived in New York City for many years before relocating to Toronto. Since 2007 people have volunteered around the world to lead walks in urban areas. One of the nicest parts of these walks is the chance to meet your neighbours (or people from far away) and talk about community issues.
This year, the many walks in the Kitchener / Waterloo / Cambridge areas are listed here.
One of the walk is sponsored by the Mt. Hope – Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association and it is described here.
Check out the list as there is something for everyone. Several occur within our neighbourhood, or within walking distance of it. But it is also exciting to join a walk in an unfamiliar area to explore Waterloo region.
For some context, and memories, here is a walk hosted by MHBPNA in 2014.
