Councillor Glen Gower will be leading his 4th annual Jane’s Walk – a personal passion of his. This year, he will be sharing Stittsville’s Secrets with you. Village Square Park, at Stittsville Main and Abbott Streets, is the starting point for the walk taking place on May 4 from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m.

This year, Gower promises that you “will discover some of the secrets of Stittsville Main Street and explore the past, present and future of the area. A bank vault, a ball diamond, a community garden, a wheelwright’s stone, the lost railway, the great fire, and more. Stroll down our main street, open your eyes, and see what you can discover”.

There is street parking on Abbott Street east (alongside the park) and a municipal parking lot is located south of Abbott on the west side of Stittsville Main (beside the Jack Ketch Restaurant). OC Transpo’s Rte. #61 will drop you at the corner of Orville and Main, steps away from the park. Bike parking is available or you can walk to Village Square Park.

“No one can find out what will work for our cities by looking at garden suburbs, manipulating scale models, or inventing dream cities. You have got to get out and walk.” Jane Jacobs, “Downtown is for People”, The Exploding Metropolis, 1957.
