Jane’s Walk – May 5, 6, & 7 K’jipuktuk / Halifax-Dartmouth

Jane Jacobs championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building. “I think it’s wicked in a way, to be a victim.” Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) 

The celebration of legendary urban activist Jane Jacobs with the JANE’S WALK Festival has grown to a global event. From the full schedule FHC has selected four walks (two on Saturday and two on Sunday) to keep you on or near the Halifax Common. Dress for the weather and bring a snack and water.
