Re-discover the City at Your Footsteps
VANCOUVER, April 19 /CNW/ - Think City is hosting Metro Vancouver's third annual Jane's Walk on the weekend of May 1 and 2. This year we are expecting more people to participate in more walks in more parts of the city than ever before.
Some notable walks to be held this year include:
- Michelle Ng's Network Over Good Food - a walking tour of some of the
Gastown's best restaurants and cafés;
- Michael Barnholden's Magnetic North/True North - First Surveys - an
exploration of Vancouver's earliest neighbourhoods;
- Judy Williams' Wreck Beach - Walk on the Wild Side - a look at the
flora, fauna, geology, ethnographic and cultural history of the
- Bryan Newson's Public Art in Vancouver - a walking tour of
contemporary public art installations in downtown Vancouver.
The goal of Jane's Walk is to raise urban literacy and build strong, connected communities by offering a pedestrian-focused event that combines insights into civic history, planning, design and citizen engagement with the simple act of walking and observing.
