Jane’s Walk Planned – Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 1 pm – Start at the southeast corner of the Arboretum

As part of the international movement of holding citizen-led walking tours promoting community-based city building during the month of May in honor of pioneer urbanist Jane Jacobs (that’s her in the graphic next to the Jane’s Walk logo) and in collaboration with our friends at WalkBoston, WalkUP Roslindale will be hosting its first-ever Jane’s Walk on Sunday, May 7, 2017 starting at 1 pm at the southeast corner of the Arboretum. We will wind our way along the proposed route of the Roslindale Gateway Path and the proposed Blackwell Path Extension, hopefully connect with a couple of key stakeholders at the Arboretum Road arch, and then hear from WalkUP Roslindale/Rozzie Bikes‘ own Mark Tedrow about walking and cycling connections to the Southwest Corridor and Franklin Park that will result from completion of the ongoing Casey Arborway project at Forest Hills. Hope to see you there!!!

  1. This is a wonderful event for Roslindale to participate in. Countless Jane’s Walk are happening all across the country during the first few weeks of May and in major cities around the world. These walks are in support of creative, cutting edge, city planning to make more livable, people friendly, urban design. Jane Jacobs was a trail blazer in sustainable city planning.
    I hope we have a large turn out. It will be a fun walk to learn more about the proposed new pathway from Ros Commuter Rail Station through the Arb to Forrest Hills.
