Public invited to help tell the story of Picton Harbour

September 28, 2022

Do you have a story about Picton Harbour? The County would love to hear it!

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

The public is invited to contribute to the storytelling. Tell us what you love about the harbour, family stories from days gone by, tales of people and industry, and more.

You can join the conversation on the County’s Have Your Say online engagement platform. You can also share your story as well as pictures, documents or artifacts related to the harbour by contacting Ashley Stewart, Community Programs Coordinator, at astewart@pecounty.on.ca 613.476.2148 extension 2508.

The cultural interpreter will use the stories collected from the public as well as information gathered through consultation with local organizations and experts to finalize the content for the information panels.

This project is part of the new walking trail around Picton Harbour that the municipality is working to develop. The trail will be more than 2 km long and be connected by seven existing lookouts. The lookouts are located between Chimney Point to Brick Kiln Point. For more information on the project, click here.

The Picton Harbour Trail lookouts will include amenities such as shade structures, garbage bins, landscaping, lighting, information panels, seating and more. Lookouts will be upgraded starting this Fall.

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.
