Sidney Neighbourhoods – Sidney Southeast

by Jodi Baker on October 8, 2014

The Southeast quadrant of Sidney by the Sea is another lovely oceanside neighbourhood where fresh marine air and beautiful sunrises greet those who live and work there.  Located just a short drive north of Victoria and close to both the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal, the Sidney Ferry Terminal (sailing to Anacortes in Washington State) and Victoria International Airport, Sidney is popular with folks who wish a little distance from big city living and easy access to transportation options.

Much like the Northeast section of Sidney, the Southeast contains a mix of commercial and residential properties.  The main commercial corridor runs along Beacon Avenue from the waterfront to the Pat Bay Highway (Hwy 17) and housing for Sidney’s lucky residents sits just south of the town.

Nestled up against the junction of the Pat Bay Hwy and Beacon Ave is the Mary Winspear Centre, a state of the art event, conference and theatre facility housing:

  • The Charlie White Theatre
  • Bodine Family Hall
  • The Ledbetter Board Room
  • Myfanwy Pavelic Gallery
  • Several smaller meeting rooms, and
  • Blue Heron Park.

The Mary Winspear Centre is truly one of Sidney’s jewels and a wonderful venue for community gatherings as well as being a destination that brings in events and economic activity from elsewhere.
