Jane’s Walk in the Neighbourhood this Weekend!!

Our neighbourhood is one of the most active participants in the annual Jane’s Walk events and various residents have hosted walks over the last 8 years! This year you can take in:

Saturday May 2 @ 2pm – Famous Families, Fugitive Slaves, and a Forgotten Soldier: 150 Years of History in Kitchener Mount Hope Cemetery – led by Wayne Miedema (also a gardener here at Guelph St. Community Garden!)

Sunday May 3 @ 1pm – Mount Hope Breithaupt Park: From East to West and Past to Future – led by MHBP Neighbourhood Association Co-Chair, Lane Burman & friends

And this one – Secret Kitchener By Bicycle – goes through our neighbourhood!

For all the walks available in Kitchener, click here. There are 14 walks to choose from!With more in Waterloo and a few in Cambridge.

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.

In a walking conversation, we can learn about what creates community and what knits us together to build more vibrant, dynamic, safe & healthy neighbourhoods.

A Jane’s Walk can focus on almost any aspect of a neighbourhood, and on almost any topic you can think of.Walks can be serious or funny, informative or exploratory; they can look at the history of a place, or at what’s happening there right now.  Anyone can lead a walk — because everyone is an expert on the place where they live!
