May 2 @ 3:00pm: The (Great) Apartment613 Blog Walk at Jane’s Walk Ottawa

By Ryan Saxby Hill on April 27, 2009

Editor’s Note: The (Great) Apartment613 Blog Walk is now scheduled for May 2 at 3:00pm. Come out and visit some of our favourite places on Dalhousie St. We’ll be blogging the walk for those of you who can’t attend (but we really think you should!)

Jane’s Walk Ottawa is a free series of community walks organized to honor the memory and philosophy of urban scholar and thinker Jane Jacobs. Ottawa has the largest event outside of Toronto, with over 30 walks planned. Walks happen all over the city on May 2-3. The goal is to get people out engaging with their communities and learning about the spaces where they live.

As part of the event Apartment613 will be holding the (great) Apartment613 Blog Walk – where we take you on a tour (live and in person!) of some of our favourite Ottawa spots. We’ll be meeting at the corner of Dalhousie and York  in the market and taking a tour of some of the finest that Dalhousie street has to offer. It’s like blogging, but with less internet.
