Garneau Neighbourhood Jane’s Walk
No Registration Required
Walk Facilitator: Graham Bell
Date and Time: Saturday, May 5, 2:00 P.M. (Approx. 2hrs)
Starting Location: The North-East corner of Garneau Park, 109 th St. and 84Ave.
We’ll share stories and walk through the back streets of one of Edmonton’s oldest, most popular, and dynamic neighbourhoods. Despite constant development, Garneau still retains many original homes and businesses, with some dating from the early 1900s, 20s, and 30s. As well, whether it’s the imminent loss of iconic heritage buildings or new inroads of the University into the neighbourhood, there is always something new happening in Garneau. All in all, it’s the perfect place to illustrate some of the thinking of Jane Jacobs.
What is Jane’s Walk?
‘’Jane’s Walk is a series of neighbourhood walks. Named after urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs, Jane's Walks are held annually during the first weekend in May to coincide with her birthday. Jane's Walks are led by volunteers and are offered for free. The walks are led by anyone who has an interest in the neighbourhoods where they live, work or hang out. They are not always about architecture and heritage and offer a more personal take on the local culture, the social history and the planning issues faced by the residents.’’
For more information on Jane's Walk, please visit the website.
