Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. More than 170 free walking tours are being held across Toronto this coming weekend. Each walk is led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work.
