Jane’s Walk honours the legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by inviting people to explore their neighbourhoods and meet their neighbours through free, guided walking tours. Jane’s Walks are held on the first weekend of May each year. Since its inception in 2006, Jane’s Walk has grown from one city to 75 cities in 15 countries worldwide.

Hamilton has been celebrating the Jane's Walk festival since 2013. Walk Leaders have taken us all over the city and beyond exploring our beauty, our challenges, and imagining our future. We have had thousands of Jane's Walkers in Hamilton over the years that have walked (and pedalled!) all over Hamilton.

Jane's Walk is called a "walking conversation" where we walk and talk about the neighbourhood. All Walkers are encouraged to join the conversation and voice their ideas and questions. This engagement is an important aspect of the event and the legacy of Jane Jacobs as it brings neighbours together through shared experiences and new knowledge. It is a celebration of our common space.

Jane's Walk Hamilton is looking for great Walk Leaders and Walk Assistants who can provide interesting facts and knowledge about a neighbourhood, street, or area in Hamilton as well as keep the "walking conversation" alive. We are looking for creative and diverse walks. Please join us!
