Burnell Street Jane's Walk Update - Cheat Sheet

Grey Goose Bus Garage

The Jane's Walks go this weekend rain or shine ! Be sure to check one out near you or, better yet, one in a part of the city that you know little about !

I've created a cheat sheet with maps and photos to accompany the walk A Century of Burnell Street. I find that having a visual reference when discussing buildings or people that are long-gone makes it much better. If you're thinking of coming along be sure to print it out and take it with !

It's not all about history. Robyn from the Daniel McIntyre/ St. Matthews Community Association (and the Winnipeg coordinator of the Jane's Walks) will be along to talk about stuff that's going on in the neighbourhood today, including the community gardens and Orioles' Bike Cage on Burnell Street.

On Sunday I will put my research, including more photos, links and newspaper articles, on this site !
