Spring Clean-Up & Jane’s Walk – May 6

janes walk

Join your neighbours to get Silver Heights Park ready for spring. The park clean-up takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Bring work gloves and shovels). We’ll be raking the sand, sweeping the basketball court, trimming the hedges and picking up after Old Man Winter. Lunch will be provided for volunteers.

Following the clean-up, explore Strathearn by participating in our annual Jane’s Walk from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Jane’s Walks take place around the world the first weekend in May. Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by urbanist and activist Jane Jacobs, who advocated a community-based approach to city building. These walking conversations get people to tell stories about their communities and connect with their neighbours.
