Jane's Walk


Jane's Walk: Lethbridge - Whatever interests you about your City, there's a Jane's Walk for you!


​ ​What is Jane’s Walk?

Jane’s Walk takes place in many cities around the world. Everyone is welcome to join in a free walk exploring the history and stories that shape our everyday urban experience. Through the simple act of walking together and discussing what makes a neighbourhood, Jane’s Walk helps knit people together into strong and resourceful communities.
Held annually on the first weekend of May, the event was created in 2007 in Toronto by friends of the urban thinker Jane Jacobs. In 2017, Lethbridge will host 13 walks in all corners of the City. Get out and walk and explore your city with fresh eyes and a curious mind.
