Victoria Neighbourhoods – James Bay

by McLean Real Estate Group on April 9, 2014

James Bay is a charming seaside neighbourhood within the City of Victoria BC.  Surrounded on three sides by water, James Bay is really a peninsula, named for one of Fort Victoria’s founders, Sir James Douglas.  Richly historical, James Bay is home to the BC Parliament Buildings, the Royal BC Museum, Beacon Hill Park and Mile 0 of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Beyond the Legislative buildings, museum and hotels clustered around the inner harbour side of James Bay you’ll find a residential neighbourhood full of beautiful historical houses including Emily Carr House, where the famous artist and author grew up.

To the west lies Ogden point with its deep water port where cruise ships are welcomed to Victoria and one of our favourite Victoria strolls – the Ogden Point Breakwater.  If having the ocean on both sides makes you nervous, head east down Dallas Road from Ogden Point, the views are just as good and your feet remain on terra firma!

James Bay has long had an active neighbourhood association, the present iteration is a non-profit society – the James Bay Neighbourhood Association, registered in 1993.  The JBNA works to maintain a safe community, address land use issues, develop community services and generally make James Bay a better place in which to live.
