Learn more about the neighbourhoods we live in through guided walking tours from Jane's Walk Edmonton. Started in Toronto in 2007, the walks began as an informative way to honour urbanist Jane Jacobs' vision of walkable neighbourhoods and people meeting others in their community. This weekend, there are 17 walks to join all over the city. Check out the schedule here.
