The Ogden Point Enhancement Society, a registered charity, was established in 1996 when then Mayor, Bob Cross, organized a group of volunteers to beautify the Ogden Point area and create public space. As a result of these meetings, the Ogden Point Enhancement Society was formed to initiate the Concept Plan. The Concept Plan defined the areas to be used by vehicles and pedestrian access corridors to improve safety and security. It also took into consideration the importance of an aesthetically pleasing public port facility and related tourism activity. Since those beginnings the Ogden Point Enhancement Society has completed several phases of enhancement.
As part of the enhancement and public use of the South Shore of Ogden Point, and a link to the Harbour Pathway project, the Ogden Point Enhancement Society (OPES) has completed the installation of an ecological information kiosk.
