Event description

Description


Queen Victoria Gardens is an inner city parkland, planned one hundred and seventy seven years ago. Sculptures have progressively been added over that time.

Our conversations will explore historical context and current use of this park and the part played by the sculptures.

Finding the sculptures in these gardens can surprise and intrigue. They range from Regal to Whimsical and will be progressively revealed and their stories told. This will give participants a prompt to look at what engages them, inviting comments on how this park is being used and whether it really works as an inner city parkland.

About Jane's Walk

Jane’s Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by urbanist Jane Jacobs.

Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect.

Walks take place in hundreds of cities around the world. Join the next global Jane’s Walk Festival on May 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2018!
