Janes WalkImage result for janes walk

Friday, May 5 – Sunday, May 7

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. Edmonton is a city of great neighbourhoods, an incredible diversity of parks, mature areas and growing suburbia, all with stories about what makes them unique.
