It’s a Jane’s Walk weekend in Red Deer.

Five resident-led walks will guide people through different areas of the city as part of Jane’s Walk, an annual international campaign inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs who encouraged people to take a walk to learn more about the neighbourhoods that surround them.

The walks are free to attend and include:

• Friday at 5:30 p.m. — Vibrant Downtown Red Deer: Nightlife, Arts and Culture, led by Jeff Rock. Meet at Gaetz United Church and Cool Beanz.

• Friday at 7 p.m. — Walk on the Wild Side, to explore natural areas in northeast Red Deer, led by Anita Thomas and Connie Simmons. Meet at Clearview Community Hall.

• Saturday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. — Air Quality Walk, includes a tour of the Riverside Monitoring Station, led by Kevin Warren. Meet at north end parking lot of 3 Mile bend Off-Leash Park, by PAMZ banner.

• Sunday at 1:30 p.m. — Downtown Red Deer – It’s beginnings, it’s “golden years,” it’s decline and recent attempts to revitalize, led by Michael Dawe. Meet at front entrance of Red Deer Museum.
