Welcome Green Space

Welcome Green Space is in the seaside community of Sidney, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This small green space, located on the corner of Ocean Avenue and Second Street, greets travelers as they exit the Anacortes/Friday Harbour Ferry. It is a island of green with a huge sign, well maintained flower beds with a lovely totem pole. Water Front Walkway is across the road. Tulista and Iroquois parks are immediately north. The Lochside Regional Trail-Sidney is also close by.

Geographical location N48º 38″ 41″ W123º 23′ 46″


Welcome Green Space is accessed from the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1). Exit Hwy1 onto McKenzie Avenue to reach the Pat Bay Highway (Hwy 17). Head north along Hwy17 as it leads past the airport to reach Sidney on the Saanich Peninsula.  Turn at Beacon Avenue to head toward the water. Follow Beacon Avenue to First Street and at the traffic circle turn right. Continue along First Street and look for the green space on the right as the road curves past the Anacortes USA Ferry Terminal in Sidney. The parking near the green space is limited.
