As part of their ongoing work within the Regent Park community, the Daniels Corporation has partnered with Jane's Walk, along with a variety of community-based organizations, to host this year's Regent Park tour, entitled "A Second Look at Regent Park." This is the second annual tour of the neighborhood held by Jane's Walk, and following the huge success of last year's tour, they're expecting a big crowd.

The tour will be held this Saturday May 5, beginning at 11:00 AM with the last walk leaving at 12:30. Each walk is estimated to take around an hour and a half, so you can be sure you'll get quite a comprehensive tour of the evolving and vibrant community.

The walk will not only look at the condominiums that Daniels is developing in the community — One Park Place, Paintbox and One Park West — but will also include personal accounts from area residents. In reference to the variety of people, cultures and perspectives that have and continue to exist within the area, each stop will be described from two different perspectives.

The walk is sure to be worthwhile, whether your interests lie in the high-rise developments or the grassroots initiatives that are changing the face of Regent Park.
