Upcoming Jane’s Walks

Posted by Joan McGuigan

A wonderful way to get out and enjoy this gorgeous weather is to participate in one of Jane’s Walks!

Jane’s Walks are named after Jane Jacobs, the author of “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” (1961). This book completely reshaped the field of urban planning, as it presented cities as ecosystems that grow and evolve over time, based on their use. A Jane’s Walk combines personal narratives, urban history, and local knowledge to bring communities together.

There will be two Jane’s Walks in the Westmount/NDG area on Sunday, May 2 (in addition to many more around the city):

Neighbourhood: Westmount
