What is the Georgia Greenway?
The Georgia Greenway is a proposed 3.1km active transportation corridor through Harewood that promotes greater pedestrian and cycling activity. Once fully completed, it will link a number of key destinations across the community including schools, parks, sport fields, and commercial areas.
The Georgia Greenway will provide an easier alternative to the conventional bike lanes on Bruce Avenue and will be a more attractive route for families, children, seniors, and lesser experienced cyclists.
Phase 1 Open to the Public
On April 27 2019, Phase 1 of the Georgia Greenway was officially opened for public use. The opening event was part of the Nanaimo Earth Day 2019 celebrations.
The ribbon cutting was preceded by an opening blessing by Ms. Lolly Good from Snuneymuxw First Nation.
