David Foster Harbour Pathway
The David Foster Harbour Pathway offers unparalleled views of Victoria’s spectacular Inner Harbour.
David Foster Harbour Pathway is more than just a waterfront route. It connects residents and visitors with key destinations in our city, from award-winning restaurants to marine-based tourism activities, and everything in between.
The Harbour Pathway celebrates our unique working harbour, giving us the opportunity to recognize Lekwungen First Nations history, enhance the natural marine habitat, and support social and economic wellbeing.
Once complete, the David Foster Harbour Pathway will extend over five kilometres from Rock Bay to Ogden Point. Special sites will be created along the pathway, increasing downtown public spaces, drawing people to the waterfront to gather with friends and family and take in the Capital City’s signature community celebrations.
We are making improvements to the pathway.
Over the next decade we're making improvements to the pathway focused on establishing new connections, improving accessibility and supporting the user-experience. The next notable segment will be constructed at sč̓əmaθən ,also known as the Peter Pollen Waterfront Park
