The first full weekend in May 2016 will be the 10th Anniversary of Jane’s Walk.

Jane’s Walks are neighbourhood level walking tours self-organized by everyday people.

This year also marks what would have been Jane Jacobs’ 100th birthday.

I’ve been leading walks since they were first organized in May of 2007.

Over the years, I’ve repeated popular walks, and in diifferent years lead as many as five different walks over the Festival Weekend.

Ask Me About Jane100 Button

In this centennial year, dubbed #Jane100, I decided to lead 10 Jane’s Walks based on all 10 of Jane’s Book published over her lifetime.
