If you like to get outside and you’re enthusiastic about learning about the city you live in, come along on a free neighbourhood walking tour with Jane’s Walk Ottawa on May 3 and 4!
The weekend-long festival of free walking tours is held to celebrate the work of urban thinker Jane Jacobs, who promoted livable cities, street-life vitality and attractive, uplifting places where people feel safe.
With walks that offer insights into local history, planning, design, and civic engagement, there is a walk for everyone.
A typical Jane’s Walk Ottawa tour is given once during the weekend, takes about an hour, and covers around one to two kilometres.
The festival of walking tours kicks off with a night of storytelling for the 2014 Jane’s Talk on Thursday, May 1.
The theme for the event is "Neighbourhood Narratives" and it will take place at Arts Court, 2 Daly Ave., starting at 7 p.m.
CBC's Adrian Harewood will host the event.
