Schools

James Bay is served by two public schools, though older students must commute to Victoria’s Central junior high and Victoria Senior High. The public library for the area is in the downtown core. University of Victoria (UVIC) and Camosun College’s campuses are both fairly close (about 5 km away)

Shopping

The area has several small shops, though the best shopping is downtown at The Bay Centre.

Recreation

Community relaxation is centred around Macdonald Park, in the middle of the community. Recreation in the area tends to look in three directions: north to the Inner harbour and downtown, east to Beacon Hill Park, and south to Dallas Rd and the Juan de Fuca Strait. There is a great running/biking/blading trail along the water stretching from the Ogden Point Breakwater to the eastern end of Ross Bay Cemetery.
