Jane’s Walk: Great Way to Discover the New Regent Park
Jane’s Walk is happening this weekend and it is a great chance to get to know the new Regent Park neighbourhood. If you are thinking about purchasing a unit at Paintbox Condos when they launch this year, and you are not familiar with the Regent Park revitalization, I highly recommend you check out this great, free event.
Jane’s Walk is named after the noted urban planner/thinker/author Jane Jacobs and celebrates her ideas on urban life and urban development through the simple act of walking through a neighbourhood and getting to know your neighbours. Started in Toronto in 2007, amazingly this event now takes place in over 70 cities worldwide!
Walking tours of the Regent Park neighbourhood will be leaving every 15 minutes starting at 11:00am tomorrow at the Daniels Sales office (on Dundas, just east of Parliament). Tours will last about 1.5 hours. Tour highlights include:
Regarnt Park Presentation Centre, One Cole Condominium, The new ‘Big Park” and Aquatic Centre, The Peace Garden, The new Regent Park Arts and Cultural Centre, 14 Blevins Place/Nelson Mandela Public School, Children and Youth Hub and Regent Park Focus.
There are dozens of walking tours going on all over the city this weekend. For investors wanting to do due diligence on a neighbourhood before investing, what a goldmine of an opportunity! Looking through the Toronto list, here are some other walks available that sound interesting:
- Making Cityplace a Place, walk led by councillor Adam Vaughan
- A Hipster’s Guide to Ossington
- Discover the Toronto Islands
- East Bay Front Walk
