Camel Point Green Space

Camel Point James Bay Angler

Camel Point Green Space is in the seaside City of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This is a water front area that hosts the boat ramp and club house for the James Bay Anglers Association in Victoria, B.C. Camel Point is a small projection of the land into the seawaters to the north of the wide concrete boat ramp and is part of chain linked fenced area of the Canadian Coast Guard facility. A small grass covered area, near the sign, provides a good spot to watch boats transiting the waters and helicopters land and take off. There is a gravel parking area for trucks and boat trailers to the immediate south of the ramp. A row of cedar hedge trees lines the property along Dallas Road. The Victoria Harbour Heliport, which is to the south, is referred to as Camel Point too. This green space is close to Ogden Point Breakwater and park, Earnest Todd Park, MacDonald Park and Todd Park. The David Foster Way along Dallas Road goes past the Camel Point Green Space. The cruise ship terminal is to the south along Dallas Road. The Canadian Coast Guard Green Space and Rooftop Garden, Fisherman’s Wharf Park are to the north.
