Jane’s Walk

 

On Sunday May 3, members of the MDCA and community participated in the 3rd annual Jane’s walk.  This walk celebrates the life and philosophy of renowned Toronto based urban planner – Jane Jacobs.   This year there were two walks in Mount Dennis. The Secret Garden and Riverbank tour included a visit to one of Toronto’s oldest private cemeteries with a spectacular view of the Humber River, through to the peaceful riverbank and ponds below, a peak at a secret garden built over the years by an anonymous newcomer.  Walk the Talk gave participants a unique birds-eye view of what remains of the former Kodak factory (once employing 4,000 people), now the subject of passionate public discussion regarding possible redevelopment of these 50-plus acres.  On both walks there were sneak peaks of the planned Mount Dennis Community Theatre project.
