Jane’s Walk – Walking and cycling challenges and opportunities in Uptown Waterloo

Join members of the Waterloo Advisory Committee on Active Transportation (WACAT) as they follow the Laurel Trail through Uptown Waterloo to Weber St and back, looking for opportunities to improve cycling and pedestrian connectivity in the city.  What challenges stand in the way of improvements?  How can we improve wayfinding and signage?  How can we encourage more people to walk and bike in Waterloo?

Meet Sunday May 4th at 2pm at the clock tower at Erb and Caroline. Councillor Angela Vieth will be leading the walk. 

For details refer to the Jane’s Walk website here.

Another interesting Jane’s Walk with a cycling theme is in Kitchener as they explore Berlin’s historical roots on bicycle, and checking out what’s currently happening on these sites.  Cruising our neighborhoods’ by bike allows a greater connection to our surroundings, while still moving at a good pace.

The National Film Board has made a series of short films about Jane Jacobs, the inspiration behind Jane’s Walks. They will be running continuously.
