Event Details

Tour Description

Tour Host: Elizabeth MacKenzie

From Vancouver's earliest neighbourhood to its newest, this walk will explore Vancouver's bisecting spine – Main St.

The walk will begin with a very short talk on Jane Jacob's ideas, we'll ask WWJD – What Would Jane Do? – as we explore this important Vancouver street, starting in the heart of the Downtown Eastside and ending up at the Olympic Village.

How does the new village compare with the original town? How do the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts fit into the city's plan? How do rapid transit stations affect life on Main St.?

Tour Host Bio

Jane's Walk

Jane's Walk is held simultaneously in cities across Canada and other countries around the world. Inspired by Jane Jacob's and her belief that in order to know your city "you have to get out and walk," Jane's Walk is a simple idea. It is free, it connects people and builds communities by promoting urban literacy and citizen engagement.
