If you feel like slipping on your walking shoes this weekend, the seventh annual Jane’s Walk Regina is happening on Saturday May 2 and Sunday May 3. As with the previous six, Regina Urban Ecology is the organizer.
You can find out more about the eight walks that are on the 2015 program on the Jane’s Walk website. The walks include one tied to the history of Wascana Creek/Lake and its impact on the local environment, another looking at Canterbury Park which is an infill development on the old Archdiocese lands on the southeast corner of Broad and College, and a third hosted by a new urban planning group that’s sprung up in town called Urbanity 101 that will discuss urban design and planning principles in Regina’s core neighbourhoods.
Other walks will look at the power of community, the path of the 1912 tornado, spots associated with peace and war in Regina, Regina’s early beginnings, and the new Heritage neighbourhood that is emerging east of Broad between College Ave. and Sask. Drive. The last walk will be led by Ward 3 councilor Shawn Fraser.
There’s six walks on Saturday, with the first starting at 10 a.m. and the last at 4 p.m. There’s three more walks on Sunday starting at 10:30 a.m. with the last one at 1:30 p.m. The walks go rain or shine, so be sure to check the forecast and dress appropriately.
