Ossington Area Jane’s Walks 2012

We like Jane’s Walk here at Ossington Village, allowing ourselves to be led through neighborhoods including our own, learning new things and meeting new people. This year, we decided to lead our own walk, and we are not alone. There are lots of walks to join in our neighborhood the weekend of May 5-6, 2012.

Our walk, titled “An Insider’s View of Ossington,” starts at 4:30pm on Saturday, May 5 in front of Bellwoods Brewery at 124 Ossington. Since we know and love this neighborhood, we’ll share some stories and recommend places for entertainment, food, and fun. It’ll take about 90 minutes, and covers Ossington between Dundas and Queen.

Also in the area, “The Walls Are Alive with The Sounds of Mad People” is an amazingly informative walk led by a local historian all about the mental patients who built the walls at CAMH. Click the link for details.

A few tours leaving from Trinity Bellwoods Park include a bike tour of Ward 19, a tour of the park itself, and, on the north end, a parade and storytelling walk.

There are also tours being led in Liberty Village, Parkdale, the Ex and Fort York. Tours are at different times on Saturday and Sunday, so check the website to find the ones that interest you the most.

Additional info on Jane’s Walk: Jane’s Walk is a celebration of people and cities taking place all around the world on the first weekend of May. It was created in 2007 in Toronto by friends of the urban thinker Jane Jacobs and has grown from 27 walks the first year to over 500 in 75 cities. Right now there are people walking and talking in Paris, London, New York… and many other cities around the world. It is free and open, and it should be a walking conversation. Walks are as varied as the people taking part, and they create the time and space for people to connect, share, and develop ideas about their communities and cities.
