Waterfront Walkway Expansion

Nanaimo’s harbour is one of our city’s greatest assets, and the existing Waterfront Walkway showcases its natural beauty. There has been a strong desire in the community to expand the walkway. City Council has made a commitment to develop a plan on how to extend it Departure Bay to Nanaimo River Estuary and improve its connections to other existing trail and bike networks. They have also committed to building five small, but important, sections of the walkway in 2018. 

City staff would like to hear from residents on their thoughts for the Waterfront Walkway at one of three upcoming open houses.
