Join us for a FREE Jane’s Walk in Coral Gables presented by Coral Gables Museum and Bike Walk Coral Gables. Jane’s Walk honors the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs who championed the interests of local residents and pedestrians over a car-centered approach to planning. On this walk, which meets at the Coral Gables Museum at 11am, participants will be guided through the bustling business district of Coral Gables. This thriving area began in the 1920s. Did you know the Colonnade Hotel was once the Coral Gables Sales Center? Or that electric trolleys once connected downtown Coral Gables to downtown Miami? Visit historic Mediterranean Revival buildings, including a former Ford dealership, outdoor theater, and riding club. Newer additions to the cityscape help tell the complete downtown story. This program is generously supported by the Historic Preservation Association of Coral Gables.
Approximately 1.5 hrs.
