Join us for a “Jane’s Walk” through Ballard this Sunday

2013 Ballard Jane's Walk

Jane’s Walk: Celebrating Ballard’s Urban Diversity Past & Present
Sunday May 5,  10am-noon
Meet up at 5805 14th Ave NW (Blowing Sands Glass)
Finish up at Ballard Farmer’s Market.

Feet First, The East Ballard Community Association and the Ballard Greenways group are teaming up to host this very first 2 hour guided walk  on May 5 from 10am-noon through Ballard to celebrate the birthday of urban thinker, Jane Jacobs. Learn how Ballard’s past and present work together to support a lively neighborhood that includes a mix of residential and commercial pockets supporting where people live, work and play.

The walk will start at the site of the soon to be 14th Ave NW Park Blvd, which when completed will run along the old trolley line. We’ll stroll parts of the proposed Ballard Greenways and along the way, we’ll introduce the project “Threading the Needle”, which provides an important connection to the waterway. Get a close up view of the new Greenfire campus and how this development is playing an important roll in supporting people of all ages through transit oriented development. Also learn about at the Ballard Centennial Bell Tower, which was created to hold the old Ballard City Hall bell at the site where the City Hall stood, and marks the Ballard Avenue Historic District.We will end at the popular Ballard Farmers’ Market at noon and participants will be invited to continue the conversation over a no-host lunch.
