Walking Directions to Stop 2
June 22, 2012
Standing at the location marker facing the clock tower, Kitchener City Hall will be at your back. Choose either the left or right pathway into the park and walk toward the clock tower. Along the way, watch for the eight sculptured pieces of luggage that make up The Luggage Project, part of the city’s public art collection.
Look more closely and you’ll find small bronze plaques with quotations from immigrants who have made Kitchener their home.
At the tower, follow the path that circles the green to where it meets Jubilee Dr. Cross Jubilee Dr. and bear left. Follow the path along the shore of the lake until you reach its southern-most tip.
Here, instead of continuing on the path around the lake, cross David St. where the path continues to Queen St. At Queen St., you will see the Joseph Schneider Haus Museum and Gallery on your right, the city’s oldest dwelling, built in 1816.
Cross Queen St., turn left and walk about 25 metres to Mitchell St. then turn right and follow Mitchell St. to Benton St.. Turn left and make your way to Courtland Ave. where you will find the second stop on the tour. The marker is on the south sidewalk, about five metres from the intersection.
Next stop co-ordinates N 043° 26.715, W 080° 29.495
