Winnipeg, MB

Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring Winnipeg's diverse and vibrant neighbourhoods.

Free walks held on the first weekend of May each year are 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.

Jane’s Walks

Get out and walk! Explore, learn and share through a Jane’s Walk in Winnipeg, MB

Jane's Walks are proposed, organized and delivered by citizens like you. Anyone is free to lead a Jane's Walk in their community. There is no formal approval or jury process, the only requirement is that your walk aligns with the Jane's Walk principles.

Organizing a Jane's Walk is Easy!

It simply involves planning a route, thinking through the stories, places and people and ideas you want to hear and talk about, and promoting it around your neighbourhood. You can also share the guiding duties with a few other resourceful friends or colleagues.

There are only two rules:

1. walks are taken and given for free

2. walk leaders promote conversation and encourage participants to share their own knowledge, stories and ideas along the walk.
