Jane's Walk Manotick - May 6, 2012
Do you want to
- Walk with your neighbours and enjoy beautiful views?
- Learn why horses regularly traveled across the Rideau River on barges?
- See the sculpture in David Bartlett Park?
- Hear about plants and wildlife that make their homes on the shores of our UNESCO World Heritage Site?
All this and more is what we have planned for the second Jane's Walk Manotick Sunday, May 6th at 2pm.
Join us for the "North Island Ramble!"
The walk starts at Long Island Park (see map), across from St. Leonard Catholic School on Long Island Road (walkers may park vehicles in the school lot). From there, we head north along the river, through the Bravar pathway to David Bartlett Park, through the MacFarlane property (recently acquired by the City of Ottawa) and end at Long Island Locks. Along the way, various local historians and biologists will comment on places and people of interest. The walk is approximately 2km long will take about an hour. The terrain is damp and uneven so sturdy, waterproof footwear is recommended. Walk goes ahead rain or shine!
About Jane's Walk
Jane's Walk celebrates urbanist Jane Jacobs, and encourages people to explore their neighbourhoods. Free walking tours held on the first weekend of May each year are led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work.
