Did you know that the municipality is working on developing a new walking trail around Picton Harbour? The trail will be more than 2 km long and be connected by seven lookouts. The lookouts will be located around the harbour from Chimney Point to Brick Kiln Point and will be installed this Fall.

The Picton Harbour Trail lookouts will include amenities such as shade structures, garbage bins, landscaping, lighting, information panels, seating and more.

This project is funded in part through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund and is the culmination of years of work by volunteers, committees, the Community and Economic Development Commission and staff.

For more information about the project, visit The County's website.

We want to hear your Harbour stories!

As part of the Picton Harbour Trail project, the municipality is working with a cultural interpreter to create seven information panels that tell a variety of stories about the Picton Harbour. The panels will include information about the history, ecology, industry and people that shaped the Picton Harbour and Picton Bay from before settlement to today.

We want to hear your stories about Picton Harbour!

  • What do you love about the Harbour?
  • What stories of the Harbour history should be told?
  • Who are the people who played a role in the history and evolution of the Harbour?
  • What do you know about the ecology: the animals, fish, birds, plants, trees, water and land formations that are so important to the Harbour and Picton Bay?
  • What was once in the Harbour that is no longer there?
  • What is the meaning of the Harbour and Picton Bay to Indigenous people past and present?

Use the idea board below to share your stories and join the conversation! You can "vote" for other people's ideas to show what you think is important, and add comments too. The cultural interpreter will collect stories through this form and through consultation with local organizations and experts before finalizing the content for the information panels.
