In celebration of Jane's Walk "Month," we'll take a walk through downtown Phoenix highlighting the new and old residential areas that make up our city. The walk will take a path through the Roosevelt Row Arts District, an area currently booming with new residential projects, as well as walking past some of the first residential spaces of the area.
Jane Jacobs Walk is a citizen-led walk meant to help people explore, learn, and talk about their community. It was inspired by the urbanist and activist Jane Jacobs, who wrote about community based approaches to city planning. She valued local residents having input in their city’s design, the importance of density, and creating pedestrian friendly streets.
Join us in celebrating Jane Jacobs's life and legacy as well as learning a bit more of the history of the city we call home. The walk will start at 6:30pm on May 11th. We will meet in front of the sculpture "Release the Fear" adjacent to the Roosevelt light rail station, located between 1st Ave and Central on Roosevelt. This event is free to the public.
