Canoe Club dragon

At the base of Swift Street, in Victoria, B.C., there is a sculpture of swirling indigenous looking sea dragon named ‘Four Winds’. This art piece was created by Chris Johnson. It lies near the boardwalk section of the David Foster Way and beside the ramp to access Mermaid Wharf. Included as part of the David Foster Way, the Canoe Club Boardwalk divides the large outdoor patio of the Canoe Brew Club, Restaurant and Marina; If you are curious, the food and drinks are delicious. The boardwalk continues along the waterfront and overlooks the small marina. Near the turnabout of Swift Street, the boardwalk passes through the patio area and up a flight of stairs toward Herald Street. There are black berry bushes, shore pine trees as well as landscaped gardens as part of the Canoe Club. Rice Mill Landing Park is to the north. Central and Royal Athletic parks are about five blocks to the east. Johnson Street Green and Reeson Park are to the south along the David Foster Way, which at this point is along the sidewalk of Wharf Street.
