Jane’s Walk

How did the small town of Côte Saint-Luc transform itself into a thriving city? What caused the great population boom of the 1950s which brought so many new services to the area. Come and find out at the City of Côte Saint-Luc’s annual Jane’s Walk, which will focus on the area north of Guelph between Blossom and Westminster, where much of this development initially took place.

About Côte Saint-Luc’s Jane’s Walks

Every year since 2017, the Côte Saint-Luc Public Library and the Côte Saint-Luc Historical Society organizes a Jane’s Walk walking tour around the city.

What is a Jane’s Walk?

Jane’s Walks are named after Jane Jacobs, an American urban activist who lived both in New York and in Toronto. Her most influential book is The Death and Life of Great American Cities, published in 1961, in which she argued that urban renewal did not respect the needs of urban dwellers. In 2007, in recognition of her work and contribution, Torontonians organized the first neighborhood walk. Since then, Jane’s Walks have been held annually and have expanded to over 134 cities across 6 continents. They are held on the weekend of her birthday, the first weekend in May. Participating in a Jane’s Walk is a great way to get to know the communities we live in.
