1:00 pm – 2:30 pm | Meet in the Atrium of the North York Centre Library (5120 Yonge St). Walk leaders will be in the atrium of the library, holding an orange Jane’s Walk sign.

Farmers, rebels, a princess, a hockey player, and your neighbours. It can be difficult to imagine what might unite them all, but community spaces do just that. These community spaces have in turn been shaped by some of Willowdale’s prominent members.

We will explore today’s community spaces as well as ones that shaped early Willowdale and along the way we learn about some of the characters that have animated and shaped this community and Canada.

Walk ends at Gibson House Museum (5172 Yonge St).
