Jane’s Walk

A beautiful day Saturday morning was perfect for Walkerville’s Jane’s Walk. Mita Williams, was a perfect host, and while Chris Holt and myself helped with the brainstorming, and spreading the word, really this event was Mita’s idea, and her drive is the reason it happened. Thanks Mita!

The group heads south along Devonshire…

We walked past and saw examples of adaptive reuse…

The old Walkerside Dairy buildings…

…and past the row houses, where a new resident to the area opened up her row house, and allowed the group to poke their heads inside…

… We also saw some beautiful stucco…

… and ended up in front of the last Peerless Ice Cream store. It was a great time, with a great turn out, and a nice walk through one of Windsor’s nicest historical areas. Hopefully next year we have a few more volunteers and a few more tours…

Thanks to everyone who made it out, and again thanks to Mita for making it happen.

  1. Yes – A big “Hooray!” goes out to Mita Williams! You pulled together a great Jane’s Walk and had some help from Mother Nature in bringing out around 40 people to tour Walkerville! Next year, look for a little more than two days notice and more neighbourhoods to visit.

  2. Ditto! Kudos to Mita, Andrew and Chris! T’was a fine day indeed for the first annual Jane’s Walk!!!

    An asise: sorry: The only morning I didn’t have a camera with me, what do I see…railway (trolley) tracks being dug up on Ouellette at Park! They were lying on sidewalk on the east side of Ouellette in front of the Holiday Inn, if anyone wants to go and shoot a picture.

  3. Wish I could have made it. Glad the weather cooperated! Thanks to Mita and her assistants for making this happen.

  4. It looked like a nice walking tour, I would have love to have made it, but my wife had to work on Saturday. We have taken these kind of walking tours in other towns and cities and always find them quite interesting.
