Nanaimo’s harbour is one of our city’s greatest assets, and the existing waterfront walkway showcases its natural beauty. Many in the community have expressed a desire to expand the walkway and improve connections from existing trail and bike networks to the walkway.
In December 2017, Nanaimo City Council endorsed a plan that outlines how the waterfront walkway can be upgraded and expanded from Departure Bay to the Nanaimo River Estuary.
Where Do We Start ?
The first two phases to come out of the implementation plan are:
1. Departure Bay
BC Ferries Departure Bay Ferry Terminal to Cilaire Neighbourhood
2. South Downtown Waterfront
BC Ferries Gabriola Ferry Terminal to Nanaimo Port Authority
The City hosted an Open House on Tuesday June 5 to present draft design details on the first two sections of the waterfront walkway being completed.
