Ship Point, one of the many harbour’s many locations connected by the David Foster Pathway

The David Foster Harbour Pathway is a vision that will trace the southern shoreline of the harbour providing spectacular views of downtown and the Inner, Middle, and Outer Harbours. Once complete, the David Foster Harbour Pathway will extend over five kilometres from Rock Bay to Ogden Point. Special sites along the way will create public harbour spaces to draw residents and visitors harbour side to gather with friends and family for signature community celebrations and personal gatherings.

The pathway will celebrate our working harbour, recognize the Lekwungen First Nations history, enhance the natural marine habitat, and support the harbour and the city’s social and economic wellbeing.
