Jane's Walk: Where the water was (lost wetlands and waterways of Halifax) 

When: Sun., May 5, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2019
Departing from the water fountain in the north Common, this Jane's Walk (a citizen-led neighbourhood tour in honour of walkable cities advocate Jane Jacobs) traces lost waterways in Halifax, with walk organizers asking: "Did you know that the Halifax Commons used to be a swamp? Or that a babbling brook used to run through the middle of the South End? Most of the peninsula's wetlands and waterways of are lost or buried, but their legacy remains in the city's spongy soils and flooded basements."
