Jane’s Walks – St. John’s Edition 2019

A Jane’s Walk is a series of free neighbourhood walking tours that get people out on the streets to discover unseen, under celebrated and unique stories about their city.

The free walking tours are held on the first weekend of May each year all around the world, and 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. The walks will take place all around the world, including in St. John’s, on May 3, 4, and 5, 2019.

Want to lead a walk? Just drop us a line at admin@happycity.ca and we’ll sort it out and get the info posted here!

All we need is a description of your walk, some info on the level of difficulty, a meeting place, a duration, and a time, and we’ll promote it all over the place. Don’t know that stuff? Get in touch and we’ll help you figure it out. 
By discussing what makes a city great, and what makes it tick, walk guides and participants are empowered to be better citizens, better stewards, and better neighbours.

Jane’s Walks are as varied as the people taking part, and they usually last about 90 minutes. We ask each walk guide to offer their perspective along the route, and to encourage the public to weigh in. Through the simple act of walking and talking, Jane’s Walks create ways for people to connect, share, and develop ideas about where their communities and cities are at and where they are headed.
