It's no secret that travelling a city by foot is the best way to get your bearings, and that's the idea behind Riverside Walks, a series of local walking tours throughout the spring, summer and fall.

From May through October, get out and explore the vibrant Riverside neighbourhood on guided walks showcasing Riverside’s diverse culture, heritage and culinary delights — catering to a wide variety of interests. And best of all, it's free.

All walks are led by local residents and Riverside personalities.
