Jane’s Walk on Stittsville Main Street
May 7, 2022, 10:00am-11:00am
In our fifth Jane’s Walk on Stittsville Main, we’ll get a glimpse at how Stittsville has transformed over the past 150 years from a small railway village to a rapidly-growing suburban community in Ottawa. We’ll focus on the future of the street, with a preview of shops and services coming soon as well as plans to improve the street for cyclists and pedestrians. As always, it will be a great opportunity to meet with neighbours and explore Stittsville’s favourite street!

Jane’s Walk is a festival of free neighbourhood walking tours that help put people in touch with their city, the things that happen around them, the built environment, the natural environment, and especially with each other. Jane’s Walk bridges social and geographic gaps and creates a space for cities to discover themselves. The walks are given by local people who care passionately about where they live, work, and play. Jane’s Walk is a pedestrian-focused event that improves urban literacy by offering insights into local history, planning, design, and civic engagement through the simple act of walking and observing.
Jane’s Walk began in May, 2007 in Toronto, and spread quickly. In 2008, it was held in ten Canadian cities: here in Ottawa, as well as in Charlottetown, Halifax, Toronto, Guelph, London (ON), Thornbury-Clarksburg (ON), Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver. Over 6000 people across Canada took part.
