Info about James Bay ( source - victoria.ca )
James Bay is a high density neighbourhood of Victoria, BC. It is the oldest residential neighbourhood on the West coast of North America that is north of San Francisco. Bay James occupies the south side of the Inner Harbour close to downtown. Access to the neighbourhood is along Belleville Street, Government Street, Douglas Street and Dallas Road.
Fisherman's Wharf remains an active marina, and the outer harbour today is further ringed by a heliport, coast guard facilities and cruise ship terminal at Ogden Point. A commercial area is centred on the intersection of Menzies and Simcoe Streets. The Inner Harbour area continues to be dominated by the Parliament Buildings and ancillary government offices along Superior Street, but is also the hub of Victoria's tourist industry with the Royal British Columbia Museum and the adjacent Empress Hotel serving as focal points for visitors to the city.
A vibrant and diverse neighbourhood, James Bay is located immediately south of downtown.
It is surrounded by water on three sides; Victoria Harbour to the north and west, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the south. Beacon Hill Park provides a green border to the east. Its extensive waterfront is alive with activity including an array of industry, government and transportation facilities.
Tourism plays a significant role in the economy of James Bay. Visitors find many of Victoria's key attractions in the neighbourhood including the Parliament Buildings, Royal BC Museum, Beacon Hill Park, Fisherman's Wharf and many hotels and bed and breakfast establishments. Horse-drawn carriages and waterfront walkways also serve as a draw.
This neighbourhood is an active community with a wide variety of housing styles including heritage homes, and an array of multi-family housing and apartment buildings. The heart of the neighbourhood, the "Five Corners" is filled with local shops and services. James Bay Community School and South Park Elementary also serve the neighbourhood. A thriving population is reflected in the neighbourhood community association and active senior's associations.
