Jane’s Walk

Let’s go for a walk! Join Jane’s Walk on Saturday, May 13 from 8:30 am to noon to explore the past and future of the dynamic Ortigas neighborhood. And Lopez Museum and Library is one of the stops! 
 
Highlights include learning about the upcoming Ortigas Greenways Project, where new elevated walkways, three parks and a bike hub connect from the Ortigas MRT to Robinsons Galleria and Meralco Avenue. The Ortigas Greenways is a partnership with the Department of Transportation and Asian Development Bank to enhance walkability and recreation in the Ortigas business district. 
 
Meet at 8:30 am at the main gates of Saint Pedro Poveda College on Poveda Street. Tour ends at noon at Purple Yam Estancia at Capitol Commons where homemade halo-halo will be available for P 240. Stay and explore the Katipunan Weekend Market until 10 pm.

What is a Jane’s Walk?
Jane Jacobs believed in walkable neighbourhoods and cities planned for and by people. Her principles continue to guide urban planning principles today. We started Jane’s Walk in 20016 to honour her life and ideas. More than 200 cities around the world host walks every year. Learn more at
