Jane’s Walks

Discover Downtown Westbrook is excited to host a series of Jane’s Walks throughout Downtown Westbrook on Saturday, May 4th!

Jane’s Walks are citizen led informational walks that have become popular nationwide. These walks are held in memory of Jane Jacobs, an activist who fought against the urban development of Central Park. You will have the chance to join a variety of Jane’s Walks in Westbrook with topics including the history of the Presumpscot river, future plans for the downtown area, and the development of walking trails in Westbrook.

Jane’s Walks are being organized by Discover Downtown Westbrook. Thank you to our volunteer leaders!
