Call for walk leaders to explore Red Deer

On Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7, Red Deerians will come together for Jane’s Walk to celebrate life in Red Deer, and we want you to lead the conversation.

This global event celebrates the ideas of Jane Jacobs who was a firm believer in the importance of local residents having input on how their neighbourhoods develop, and encouraged people to explore the places they work, live and play.

“We are asking residents to sign up to lead a walk,” said Bailey Doepker, Environmental Program Specialist. “Plan a walk that shares your passion and knowledge about our community, or what you think people would want to see.”

This will be the seventh year of Jane’s Walk events in Red Deer. Some of the walks in the past include a tour of Riverside Meadows to Riverlands, the bronze ghost statues, and a reflection on the past that focused on major historical features in our city.

Residents who are interested in leading a walk the first weekend in May can visit www.reddeer.ca/janeswalk for more information and to register. The deadline to sign up to lead a walk is April 28.
