This year, all our explorations will have a single bold purpose: to focus on visioning and revisioning Milwaukee.

If you have a vision and a revision for the city and want to share it with others . . . then YOU can lead a Jane's Walk.  That's the main criteria for ALL these city explorations: that they focus on your vision, a current revision, or much-needed revision of the city.

It might help to check out the walks residents and organizations offered during our first 3 years. 

And here are even more ways you could share your vision/revision:



  • Themed walk: sustainability, water, health, safe streets, etc.

  • Historical walk

  • Parks walk 

  • Public art or architecture walk

  • Culture walk

  • Cuisine walk

  • Walk audits: observe, note, and reflect on community assets, struggles, and possibilities, then share with the City's bicycle and pedestrian task force 

  • Youth-centered walk: either youth-led or focused on helping youth discover their city

  • Happy hour walk

  • Unknown or scarcely known significant places in your neighborhood

  • Favorite ____ in Milwaukee

  • "Goal" walks (like the goal to traverse the entire city using the County Parks system)

  • Walks that begin or end at a community hub (like the Sherman Phoenix)


Run or Bike

  • Jane’s Jog or Bike: you can cover a lot more ground!


  • Jane's Kayak: explore green infrastructure on the water, etc.



  • Follow one bus line through different parts of the city, disembarking in different neighborhoods

  • Notes:

    • Avoid rush hour and school dismissal times.

    • Make sure everyone has an M-Card with a pass or stored value, or the MCTS iPhone app.

    • Run your plans by Andy Tillman at MCTS ( a couple of weeks before your tour.



  • Plan a wheelchair-accessible tour of a neighborhood

  • Assess accessibility of a particular street or neighborhood
