Partners Creating Pathways

Since late 2007, Island Pathways has been spearheading the construction of off-road pedestrian and bicycle pathways paralleling busy roads in the Ganges area. By 2015-16, everyone living within walking distance of town can leave their car at home and walk or wheel to safely reach their downtown destinations.

Island Pathways has partnered with the agencies listed below to complete, in 2017, its 10-year commitment to build 10 sections of the Ganges Village Pathways Network — nearly $1-million worth of CRD-MoTI community assets, costing local taxpayers about $250,000. The rest of the funds came from grants, donations, in-kind help, Island Pathways’ map sales, and more.

Help us continue to make Salt Spring safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorized wheelchair users by donating to the “Step up” campaign.

Island Pathways has added information kiosks, interpretive signage, and benches throughout the ~5 km of pathways built by PCP and has installed its maps at the three ferry terminals. Open the PDF by clicking here.

Throughout the years we’ve had many generous friends, donors, and partners contribute, and we thank each and every one of you!
