Jane’s Walk neighbourhood walking tour of Meadowbrook on May 3 and 4, 2014

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will be home to one of 50 neighbourhood walking tours around the island of Montreal on May 3 and 4, 2014, as part of the annual Jane’s Walk event across North America and the world.

Councillor Dida Berku and David Fletcher of the Green Coalition will be leading the two-hour tour “Meadowbrook: A Treasure to Discover” on Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 11 am starting at Richard Schwartz Park (Côte Saint-Luc Rd. at Westluke Ave., bus route 103). The walk is free of charge, but participants are encouraged to RSVP at dberku@cotesaintluc.org.

The Montreal-area walks are organized by the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre (www.ecologieurbaine.net/activites-et-projets/activites/promenade-de-jane).

Jane’s Walk is a series of free neighbourhood walking tours that helps put people in touch with their environment and with each other, by bridging social and geographic gaps and creating a space for cities to discover themselves. Since its inception in 2007, Jane’s Walk has happened in cities across North America, and is growing internationally.

Jane’s Walk honours the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs who championed the interests of local residents and pedestrians over a car-centered approach to planning. Jane’s Walk helps knit people together into a strong and resourceful community, instilling belonging and encouraging civic leadership.
