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. This project compliments
the present historical land-use information kiosk located at Confederation
Point and the underwater plaques located along the outer base of the breakwater.
This interpretive display, in keeping with the stated objectives and mandate
of the Ogden Point Enhancement Society, serves to enhance recreational
uses of the breakwater precinct as well as the cruise ship receiving area
for the benefit of both visitors and locals.
The kiosk at Confederation Point focuses on the cultural history of Victoria
as related to the Harbour and Ogden Point, and describes the physical location
and surroundings visible from the kiosk and breakwater. This kiosk emphasizes
the role of the port of Victoria in shaping local history and situates
Victoria within the rest of Canada and the world.
We thank all our sponsors for helping us achieve this project.
