Coming up on May 1st and 2nd, Oakland will play host to a crush (6!) of free walking tours as part of the Jane’s Walk event. Jane’s Walks inspire citizens to get to know their city and each other by getting out and walking. Jacobs famously declared that walkable, diverse and mixed-use neighborhoods are the hallmark of a healthy city and its people.
You can read more about the Oakland walks here.
Four of the walks start at 10:00 am on Saturday, 5/1, so interested folks will have to make some choices. An afternoon walk starting at 2:00 pm will wrap up at the Grand Tavern! A Sunday walk goes long distance, starting at the MacArthur BART station and wrapping up near Lake Merritt and the 19th street BART stop.
We’re looking forward to seeing you during this exciting walking weekend. If you can’t make it, but are interested in further events, drop us a line and we’ll add you to our mailing list.
