Jane's Walk

On Sunday, May 2 at 3:00 pm, Richmond will be hosting its first Jane's Walk tour.

The tour will meet at the western edge of Chimborazo Park and follow a circular route through the neighborhood, exploring a variety of streetscapes, architecture, public spaces, institutions and community services, while hearing the stories of residents and scholars about this quintessential Richmond place. The route is approximately two miles long, extends north of Broad St and is expected to last about two hours. The sights along the walk will be illuminated by John Johnson, a Church Hill resident and expert of the neighborhood’s history, Gary Inman, an architectural historian with a wealth of knowledge on Richmond’s buildings and places, and Lisa Taranto, Director of Tricycle Gardens and creator of two community gardens along the route.

This event is free to the public and will be a great opportunity to learn more about our city. Check it out!
