Jane’s Walk on Queens Quay

Join Waterfront Toronto on Saturday, May 4, to celebrate Jane’s Walk along Toronto’s main waterfront street. Inspired by urban thinker Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walk is a series of walking tours designed to help people better understand the cities they live in. Last year, walks were held in 85 cities around the world. The Queens Quay walk will begin at the Spadina WaveDeck at 1pm and is expected to last about 90 minutes. During the walk, participants will learn more about the visionary design for Queens Quay from Waterfront Toronto’s Vice-President of Planning and Design, Christopher Glaisek and West 8 + DTAH landscape architect, Jelle Therry. As the walk moves east on Queens Quay, the group will see firsthand how construction is unfolding. Along the way, participants will see where 2.5 million pieces of granite will be installed for an impressive new promenade and how the new roadway will be reconfigured. There will also be time to climb Toronto’s must-see wavedecks and stroll along the water’s edge promenade at Canada’s Sugar Beach. Jane’s Walk on Queens Quay is a rain or shine event. RSVPs are not required. More information is available on the Jane’s Walk website - http://bit.ly/181SINi Directions TTC: 509 Harbourfront Bus from Union Station or 510 Spadina Parking: Paid parking is available to the east and west of the Spadina WaveDeck (at Dan Leckie Way or Rees Street)
