Galt Collegiate Institute
200 Water St. N.
See Map: Google Maps

Walk begins at the main entrance of the historic Galt Collegiate Institute - see the inside front foyer of GCI on the tour and feel the history. From there, the walk navigates across the road to the Canadian Pacific Railway Station where Jim Griffin will share significant stories of the past.

This walk is hosted in partnership with the Blair Road Neighbourhood Association and Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region.

For safety reasons, no pets allowed.

Jane’s Walk is a series of neighbourhood walking tours. Named after urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs, Jane's Walks are held annually during the first weekend in May to coincide with her birthday. Jane's Walks are led by volunteers, and are offered for free. The walks are led by anyone who has an interest in the neighbourhoods where they live, work or socialize. They are not always about architecture and heritage, and offer a more personal take on the local culture, the social history and the planning issues faced by the residents.
