Jane’s Walk

I would like to take a moment to share an upcoming event in Stittsville with a community focus.


The Jane’s Walk is a festival of free neighbourhood walking tours that help put people in touch with their city, the things that happen around them, the built environment, the natural environment, and especially with each other. Jane’s Walk bridges social and geographic gaps and creates a space for cities to discover themselves. Jane’s Walk is a pedestrian-focused event that improves urban literacy by offering insights into local history, planning, design, and civic engagement through the simple act of walking and observing.


Two walks will be taking place in Stittsville this Saturday, May 6th.


The Rotary Club of Stittsville will meet at 10:00 at the W.J. Bell Rotary Peace Park (at the Cherry Drive entrance). Participants can learn more about the story behind the Peace Park labyrinth as well as its importance to our public space. For more information, please visit http://janeswalk.herokuapp.com/walks/1104


Later in the day, a second walk will also be held with a focus on the history and future of Stittsville Main St. This walk begins at 12:00 and interested residents are invited to meet at Village Square Park. For more information, you can visit http://janeswalk.herokuapp.com/walks/2844


I hope that residents take this great opportunity to learn more about the community of Stittsville and enjoy a nice walk outside in the warmer weather. Remember that walks will take place rain or shine so bring an umbrella!
