Tour Description

Tour Host: Gordon Price

In the context of Jane Jacobs, this tour of the West End – particularly West of Denman – will explore and examine the urban fabric of this vibrant neighbourhood. Walk from Lost Lagoon to Mole Hill and see the streets and buildings, residential and commercial, the open spaces and the people.

How has urban planning in this area historically incorporated Jane's ideas? Where have they been ignored?   Join Gordon Price, Director of the City Program at Simon Fraser University and former Vancouver city councillor for this insightful look into Vancouver's West End.

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.
