Deborah Hartt, a member of the Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee of Cambridge will guide the walking tour through the downtown, stopping at various points of interest and discussing their historical relevance to our community.

The tour will end at Idea Exchange Queen's Square, where participants can enjoy a musical performance by a local teen pianist with light refreshments to follow. Join us and discover your community! Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. Free walking tours held on the first weekend of May each year 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. Since its inception in Toronto in 2007, Jane’s Walk has expanded rapidly. In May of 2013, more than 800 walks were held in over 100 cities in 22 countries worldwide.
