Ambleside Waterfront Concept Plan

In the draft Ambleside Waterfront Plan,  Art remains a strong long-term presence on the waterfront through the creation of a new community art building west of the Ferry Building Gallery. Green space is maintained to the east and west of the Ferry Building, preserving the prominence of this important heritage building and allowing for the continued arts-related use of these landscaped areas for programs like “Painters’ Landing”.

Rent the Gallery

With its neighbouring pier, lawn and waterfront landing, the Ferry Building Gallery is a stunning venue for your private event. After-hours rental is available, depending on the current exhibition.
