Walk Description:

With Ireland Park closed this year and Dr. Grasett Park yet to be open, this virtual platform affords us the opportunity to share with you this timely historic story of illness, sacrifice, rebirth, and renewal around the 1847 typhus epidemic.

Jane's Walk Toronto is committed to exploring different softwares, applications and formats to make our walks and programming as accessible as possible.
