Community invited to take part in Jane’s Walk this week
Join us for the annual Jane’s Walk festival in Lethbridge May 5-7!
Jane’s Walk is a global pedestrian-powered movement of neighbour-led walking tours inspired by urbanist Jane Jacobs. This is a free community event.
The purpose of the walk is to encourage people to get out on the streets of their neighbourhoods to discover unseen, under-celebrated and unique stories about their city. Through the simple act of walking together and discussing what makes a neighborhood, Jane’s Walk helps knit people together into stronger and more resourceful communities.
