Volunteer Guides Sought

VicPark(JanesWalk)Thanks to local organizers, Regina will host a Jane’s Walk for the fifth year in a row. We’ve written on it before, but what it entails is people with a familiarity with a particular neighbourhood or some other aspect of their city like architecture, history or a specific cultural community stepping forward to lead a walk where they share their interest and knowledge with their fellow citizens.

The event, which is named after urban planning guru Jane Jacobs, is held annually in cities around the world. In Regina, Jane’s Walk will go May 4-5. Right now, organizers are looking for volunteers to lead the walks. If that sounds like something you’d like to do, you can find out more by visiting the Jane’s Walk website. You can also contact organizers directly at janeswalkregina@gmail.com.

Hopefully by the time the walk is held the snow will have disappeared. Although the way things are going, there might very well still be some white stuff on the ground come May. As for the above photo, this is how Victoria Park looked yesterday afternoon.

  1. I have two Jane’s Walk tours that I could provide the talking points and the basis for the tour. I will be out of town that weekend, otherwise I would do them.

    In light of the coming spring flood potential, both of these should be of interest to Reginans.

    The 1st is about Wascana Lake and the various digs happening over the century.
    The 2nd is the history of the recent work on the Riverside Dyke on the north side of the creek between Albert Street and Elphinstone Street.
