Arbutus Park Water Access
You may have heard the news from the Burnside Gorge Community Association that they are now actively lobbying the city to develop Arbutus Park and open access to the water.
Are you in support of giving Burnside Gorge Public Access to the Waterfront?
Arbutus Park is located at the bottom of Washington Avenue. Developing Arbutus Park will have a positive impact on the community by providing a valuable waterfront amenity that can be used by employees, residents, and tourists. Such neighbourhood amenities can transform the perception of the neighbourhoods leading to increased investment, events, and foot traffic. Developing the Gorge Waterway could have a positive effect on the business community with great examples from cities like Indianapolis.
Use your voice!
Victoria City Council is currently holding meetings to discuss the city’s strategic plan and annual budget. They are requesting that Arbutus Park and a vision for the Burnside Gorge waterfront be included as part of the budget and strategic plan.
Please e-mail the Mayor and Councillors to share your thoughts and voice your support of our neighbourhood.
